green manures and cover crops
a trip out to the garden this morning to do some more winterizing...the roma tomato plant in the top photo had begun to die back seriously...there were no fruits and i couldn't find any blooms either so i removed it and planted the spot with some fall manure mix ( third through fifth photos )...i also spread some seed around other beds where the cover corp seemed a bit sparse...this month will see the replanting of the jerusalem artichoke, the mulching of the garlic, and continued planting of green manure and cover corps..by halloween we should be ready for winter and already thinking of a plan for next spring...there will be more to come...stay tuned.
an industrial worker and university student (everyone needs a hobby...my hobbies have evolved and, to keep things straight, i have left my formal student career behind for reasons that are too detailed to delve into here...continuing to be a student of life however and not adverse to learning...stasis is death ) sliding down the back side of middle age...a social loner with collectivist leanings...explain that.
