Happy Thanksgiving!

This weekend included the last workday Saturday before Thanksgiving break, and possibly of the semester. So we did some “fall cleaning” to get the garden into shape to battle winter.

A structure made out of wood and curved beams, recycled from last winter, was finished. This structure will house plants still in their flats over the winter to protect them from the cold.

Plastic tarps held down by wood, bricks and cement blocks will block out wind.

The compost piles were transferred into larger, but fewer piles to keep it together. A fresh coat of paint was applied to the compost centers to keep it looking alive while the compost decomposes and is eaten by bacteria.

Hard at work!

Now it’s time to let the garden do it’s thing while all gardeners get a chance to rest and recharge. Enjoy your (hopefully) local and organic foods and veggies, and have a safe and relaxing Thanksgiving!
