Week 21: Putting our gardens to rest

Although it is almost the end of our 22-week long course, we are still keeping busy!  We are primarily focused on collecting the last harvest, spreading cover crop, mulching around perennials, and gathering our garden tools for our end-of-season inventory.  With so much to do and cold weather inviting us to be very efficient with the time we spend in the garden, we rely on garden checklists to keep us on track.

We are grateful for other gardener’s who have come before us and have written checklists to guide us with putting our gardens to rest.  In that spirit, we share with you this checklist from Waterfowl Farm (we don’t actually know them, but we are thankful they share resources online!):

Putting the Garden to Bed – A Fall Checklist 


One CTG student decided to uproot and re-pot her beautiful marigolds to bring them inside.  You can do the same with perennial herbs such as rosemary and thyme that tend to be less frost-hardy than other herbs.
