    Default Cleaning yard for the Winter.

    Weather is sunny and warm in the afternoons and the end of my growing season is approaching. I is a perfect time to clean and tidy for over-wintering. The spent produce vegetation was pulled and put through the chipper/shredder. Weeds were pulled and the area rototilled. The area was raked smooth, and any compost ready will be applied. This is the bulk clean-up, pruning will take place later as required.

    I pulled my summer crops and replanted my beds with cover crop. That's all I'm growing at home this winter. Next spring I'l dig all the foliage into the beds about 6 weeks before I plant my summer garden. It should be a great garden next summer and a nice easy winter.

    I am going to cut back my herbs today and clean up the patio and carport. When my husband has a chance we will clean up the garden, pull up stacks stack and burn what remains. Even though we try to go as natural as possible we are planning to spray the garden with a pre-emergent about December to try to get morning glories killed out. It is a losing battle when they come up in the garden, you just keep pulling and cutting. If they get the upper hand they just choke out what you have planted.

    Putting down a winter fertilizer and making sure all weeds are pulled and spraying down some weed killer. Trimming back all of our mature trees.
