Garden cleanup!

It’s not a fun thing to do, but more of a must do kind of job. Why?! Well, you don’t want to give a home to pests to help boost their population in the spring. Also, you don’t want diseased plants staying until you plant again next year! Since it didn’t rain on Sunday, this is what I did!

The After (still more cleanup to go!) 

The chicken coop got a nice clean out:

Never a clean job! 

I also cleaned up the fence line garden that gave us lots of produce!

The after 😢

We are still getting some eggs and a few mushrooms. Winecap mushrooms are so good, that I’m attempting to spread the spores into another raised bed!

Winecaps! 

We had a lot more pumpkins dropped off today!! The uncarved ones are saved for the chickens and the carved ones are making a big compost pile! Basically we are trying to keep this long season crop from just sitting in a landfill!

65 pumpkins so far! 

And lastly, check out my bragging:

We are going to continue to clean up all the produce gardens and try to reach 100 pumpkins!!
