Fall garden, R.I.P.

Last week, we had a night when the low temperature was 18F. That froze the remaining greens in the garden. So it was time to turn the garden at last. Ken and his girlfriend Sarah, who is visiting this week, did the work.

It’s a shame that I wasn’t able to plant a cover crop of winter rye, but I couldn’t bring myself to turn under a garden that was still producing mustard and kale. The plan is to make up for it by adding lots of compost to feed the worms.

Speaking of worms, I hope the chickens didn’t eat too many of them. More than anything, they love to scratch in freshly turned soil.
