Working......in the Garden!!

Harvest of 33 Butternut Squash and 42 Spaghetti Squash

Work, work, work...I spent a day harvesting everything left in the garden. Composting all the old, sad, plants...and removing the mulch film. Now the raised beds are exposed to the fall rain, and ready for a fresh topping of compost. I am happy to get the work completed before it rains, working in rain and mud is not pleasant. There still is more to do, after a killing frost on the flowers. I am very satisfied with the winter squash harvest. There are plenty to eat, with many to give to friends and family.
