The End of 2017’s Garden

It is the first week of October.

Temperatures have been lovely but it is cooling down. As it cools it becomes to cool for pollination. My cucumbers and tomatoes are still producing and we have carrots as well. Still, the time comes to ponder the end of this years production. It takes a week or two to take all of the plants down.

It is hard to think about while they are so healthy and productive looking.

They are also hanging from the deck nicely.

But it has to be done before it gets to cold and miserable. Sigh. I have no idea where to start.
