The community garden is officially put away for the season. Well, sort of. We have to clean up everything that needs to be cleaned up, and sign off on it by 11/1, and this being the last weekend before that date, I went ahead and pulled out everything that really needed to be pulled out. And the Swiss chard and broccoli. They were both producing quite a bit less, so I decided to harvest what was there, and pull those out – less to worry about later when it’s truly cold.
That leaves the kale and Brussels sprouts. We still have not had a frost here – it’s come close, but not actually frosted, at least this close to the ocean. Which is bizarre. But means the brassicas are still doing great. I also left the calendula – they still look good, and there were bees around them, so I figure I’ll leave them food as long as I can.
