End of Season - 2013

Well, the time has come! It's time to clean out the garden. I'll be honest, it's been so cold lately that I haven't been to the garden in awhile and was surprised to see that there was still some stuff growing. 

It went from this:

To this:

And we harvested this:

I'm not sure how good any of it will be, but we can try!

One problem I had was that I intentionally planted some beans that were supposed to dry on the vine...but I couldn't find them. I found dried green beans, but I'm not sure if those can be stored. I was supposed to have dried cranberry beans.  I never have much luck with green beans. 

Anyway, I've already started planning next year's garden! First step should deciding where it will be, but I've stepped over that and have started my list of what I want to grow! Then by March I'll have to figure out when to start each plant. 

Eventually, I'll figure out where I can build garden beds (i.e. where we get the most sunlight). 

For now...I'm trying to make use of all of the leaves that have fallen by building a 3-bin compost bin!

(Alright, Morgan's building it!)
