The official notice is out. Plots need to be cleaned up by the end of September. Gardeners who leave a mess of weeds and dead plants behind them run the risk of forfeiting their plot. Of course, anyone who has registered for next year is permitted to garden through the winter.

Here is a plot beautifully ready for winter. Soon a cover crop will protect the soil and add nourishment when it is dug in next spring.

Ready for Winter
