How to winterize your garden:



Add leaves


Weed the raised bed and turn the soil
Add newspaper to keep the soil warm



 






Add 4-way soil (Clackamas Landscape Supply has it - sand,
garden compost, cow manure, and soil)

Wonderful bounty! Good to eat what one grows. Tastes so much better than what's grown commercially. Enjoy!
