Farm Fall Cleanup

The cleanup was a little early this year. A few weeks back our region got hit with a massive hail storm which made all the leaves see through. Next year we need to remember to plant fall and winter vegetables. Lower maintenance and hail-resistant.

Hi there! Love following your blog, or should I say garden. :)
I have a small garden and am looking for ideas to prepare the garden for the winter months. I use a row cover, should I just keep it? What did you use to cover your raised beds?

Best,
Isabella

Hello Isabella. We use burlap to cover the raised beds. There is a pack of feral cats that think the beds are their litter box and the burlap dissuades them. Other than that we just clean up so we can hold our head up high. Let us know if you have any ideas.

Burlap is a great idea. I still have vegetables growing and I'm trying to figure out how to do the clean up since they are all mixed up (winter and spring crops).

Where do you get burlap from?

I hope you guys update soon. It's been inspirational. Also, did you build the compost sifter?

Hi S. We've updated! And yes, we built the sifter. It's functional but rickety. Not the finest craftsmanship.
