a beautiful day in the garden
Today's harvest is a big pile of carrots (Bolero and Oxheart), the last of my beets (White Detroit and Lutz) and a few more potatoes.
My garlic is all planted. Lots of it. Four orders of garlic is a LOT! I'm looking forward to a big harvest next summer. I mulched it with salt marsh hay that has saved well for a second winter now.
And I finished up composting and planting cover on one bed. The corn bed, where squash will go next year. Three more to go.
I pruned the dead growth from my espaliered pear. My Barlett is looking good. I'm hoping for fruit next year. I was about to remove my second tree, a Parker pear, but was pleased to find what looks like live wood upon close inspection. I'll wait and see if it will leaf out this spring.
I've been finding all sorts of small garden tools that I lost throughout the season. The garden is regaining order after a prolific season with way too much planted in a little space.
