But the projected minus 27 degree nighttime temperatures last week had me convinced that it was time to cut all my warm season crops to the ground!
Meanwhile, I have kept my kale, broccoli, and chard in the ground as they can withstand these cooler temperatures. It's not that I expect them to grow much more, it's just that I currently have no place for them indoors! The same goes for my carrots and potatoes - I have mulched these beds with leaves so that I can keep them stored in the ground for as long as possible.
So if you're still up for one last push in the garden this season and want to improve your soil and have it ready for the spring season, then check out my video here or below. In it, I go over my 5 Steps for Putting your Vegetable Gardens to Bed.
Lastly, as we move indoors for the fall and winter, don't forget to join us for our monthly film nights! The first Permaculture Film Night of the season is coming up on Wednesday, November 18th with a screening of Revolution:Food. Save the date and join us!
My best to you this fall,
