Another Fall Garden Update




Category: Gardening | Posted: Wed Oct 01, 2014 9:32 pm

We've been getting squash and cucumbers for over a week now and everything else is looking good. I did have a small problem with leaf rollers on the pole beans, but after a "smashing" party I think I have it under control.

I have mulched the entire garden. I normally don't mulch the walkways, but we got three truckloads of mulch from a local tree trimming place so I had an overabundance. The best thing... It was free.

I don't know why I never tried a Fall garden before.

I'm so glad your fall garden is doing so well for you eclectic. I've been having a 'smashing' party here too only with slugs and snails instead of leaf rollers.
How I wish someone would let me have three truckloads of mulch!! I could put it to really good use as you did. Free is the very best isn't it?

Thanks Eileen. They would have brought more mulch, but I told them 3 truckloads was enough.
