Once Thanksgiving is over, we know the window of opportunity and time to get everything ready for winter needs to get done. The top third was added on Wednesday, a mixture of manure, top soil and peat. Some fairy dust in the form of earth worms was added lastly on top. They have now entered the soil and will be spending the non growing season preparing the soil for spring, while the weather is cold and the garden gets its winter break from the growing season.
Before that it was filled with leaves and cardboard.
A new start, a baby hat for a friend's niece who is having a baby girl soon. The pattern is from Kate, the twisted baby cuff hat at, arts and socks. blogspot.
So not a lot of sewing, but we tidy up outside and winterize as much as we possibly can. The peppers are back in pots, for winter. Their boxes we will make higher as well, so the soil have been removed this past week and they will be remade the same as the other three ones we made recently.
So a busy week, with the rain expected this weekend moving dry soil was an easy decision. The raised posts will allow us to make covers to protect the plants against frost, as we will use them to add the covers onto.
