It has been lovely this summer but I am ready for it to end.
But I have made some decisions about next summer.....
More flowers.... and less tomatoes. I could not keep up with all the tomatoes this summer.
So to close the garden...
- I will pull it.
- Rototill some compost in it
- Cover with mulch.
Weed until the grass dies back and finally put a layer of dry leaves on it for the winter.
Besides, fall is the busiest time in the flower beds for me... so fall chores; grass seed, perennials dividing, bulb planting and finally bush placement will eat up all fall not to mention, leaves, leaves and oh yes, leaves.
