This past weekend we spent some time playing in the dirt. We did some fall garden cleanup and maintenance including harvesting the last of the root vegetables, pulling out dead plants, and getting the soil ready for compost.
Both Andrew and I remarked on how much easier it was to do this maintenance on the square foot garden portion of the veggie garden. Typically by the time fall hits we are into garden fatigue and don’t have the motivation to tackle the cleanup part of the garden. This usually means we have a whole lot of work to do some spring. The smaller square foot garden made maintenance throughout the whole season easier and there were substantially less weeds to battle in the fall. Definitely a success.
And while we were doing cleanup Little Miss got to play outside and managed to get covered in dirt as usual. Good thing it was bath day.
