Fall Garden Tasks
Deal with leaves - check.
Shredded leaves make good mulch for the berry patch.
Apply compost - check.
Obtain and spread pine needles for mulch - check.
Trim/pull spent foliage - check.
Some of the plant materials is yard waste, such as seed heads and plants with disease; set out for curbside pick-up - check.
Start new compost pile, allowing the cycle to begin anew - check.
Clean and store garden tools - check.
(I used a silicone spray.)
Put garden art and hoses away - check.
Savor the last rose - check.
It was a good year in the garden, but now it's time for the garden, and the gardener, to rest.
