Autumn has arrived at Garden on Sherlock Street. While we only got a light frost last week, many of the plants are tucking in for a winter nap.
The locust tree is dropping leaves everyday.
Saturday, I took down the teepee trellises and cut down the sunflowers. I wanted to get a photo of the tallest sunflower by itself first. My wonderful husband helped me measure it after we cut it down. It grew to eleven feet four inches!
Here is the area where the sunflowers and teepee trellises were. See the teepee trellises leaning against the fence for winter?
This is the view from the alley. I removed all the plants from the raised vegetable beds. I set the cold frames in the beds so they're ready for next spring. I also planted my garlic Saturday and drained the rain barrels.
When I took down the teepee trellises, I harvest the gourds. This is the gourd harvest. The gourds just couldn't produce in the heat this year. These will be decorations on Thanksgiving.
We put some new mulch in the area where the fiber installers had to dig a hole by the house too.
Saturday was a great day to clean up the garden.
