I’m a bit behind with garden cleanup this year. So, I spent most of the weekend cleaning up the koi pond and the vegetable garden. Yesterday was cold and miserable so, of course, that’s when I worked on the koi pond – poor choice on my part!
Today was gray but definitely warmer and I cleaned up the raised beds and the in-ground vegetable beds. I’ve got some tillage radishes growing for cover crops in the in-ground beds. The raised beds are mostly empty except for one that has radishes, turnips, kohlrabi, and some lettuce growing in it. The empty ones will get covered with a thick layer of leaves in the next couple of weeks.
But It’s Really Not a Wrap
I don’t yet have a hoophouse on the raised beds nor do I have a greenhouse. Those are both goals, if you’re wondering. However, I do have a small hydroponics setup in our basement and I’ll starting growing lettuce, bok choy, and spinach in early December. I’ve also got some cool-seasons vegetables – like beets, kale, radishes, and turnips – growing outside and I’m hopeful for a harvest or two before winter really hits. Time will tell!
