Garden Cleaning

It seems that the last few nights must have gotten colder than expected, as all of my warm season plants have vanished. Start the winter clean up. Remove the pumpkin, cucumber. tomato, pepper plants; as most of the plant material is pretty diseased. I have a clean compost pile and dirty compost pile. The dirty pile is way off in a corner. This is where I put the disased plant materials. The only other disposal method is to put the plants into garbage bags and then into the landfill, but we are trying hard not to do that.

If you a have big enough area, burying the diseased material can be done but the diseased pieces can be viable for many years.

Cabbage, Romanesco, celery are still doing very well.
