It’s that time. The brisk cold air. No humidity. Little left on the vines or the veggie plants.
It’s time to winterize the garden. I wanted to share a few of the basics to help get your garden ready for the winter…and ultimately for planting in the spring!
- Pull seeds from herbs, flowers and from inside the last vegetables from your crop. Save them to use for next year’s garden.
- Clear out dead plants and add to compost pile.
- Turn the dirt, turn in the compost or aged manure into the dirt, and then mulch with straw or dead leaves from the garden.
Everything I’ve learned from gardening has come from the Square Foot Gardening books by Mel Bartholemew, from my friend Lucy, or from you all!
What other ways do your prepare your garden for the winter, and the spring?!
