I spent some mega time working the two beds and clearing them out. Do you see that tiny tomato plant in the back bed?
That's one of the things we planted that didn't survive. I just discovered this plant with 3 whole tomatoes on it! If it gets too close to freezing at night , I will pick these and fry them up for some fried green tomatoes! Otherwise, I hope they turn red soon.
I filled 2 dumpsters with our garden debris! Yikes!
I also sprayed for weeds today, cleaned out the front garden bed, and tomorrow I need to mow the lawn. When I'm out working, I think about how for years we wished for a yard and years later we finally got one... and then sometimes we wish for a bigger yard, but when it comes to actually taking care of it, I'm glad we have a smaller yard! I can't imagine caring for anything bigger than this! In fact, sometimes I miss apartment life where the groundskeepers care for it all!
But the veggies and apples we can grow make it all worth it!
