Re: My Fall Garden To Do List

This is an article I wrote for the local paper a couple years ago about gardening in the fall...


I prepare the vegetable bed by rough rototilling it. The roughness will give it more surface area to dry out in the spring. Next I put down some old lumber I have to mark the direction the rows will go in the spring. I alternate between north/south and east/west as a kind of crop rotation. I mound up a row next to the lumber and rake in some compost. That row will be ready for peas in the spring and I will have a place to walk to plant!
