October 19, 2008 – Post Tomato Harvest Work

Now comes the unglamorous part of the gardening season (OK, some of you may argue that weeding isn’t particularly glamorous, but at least the garden is optimistic or colorful during the weeding season).

Here, we’re in the middle of the clean-up.  Most of the tomato cages and some of the posts and left-over vines remain.  I think it is important to get the tomato vines up and piled up to burn later in a different location to reduce overwintering of tomato disease in the soil.  This spring we didn’t have time to get mulch down so we cheated and just used weed barrier fabric and hog panels to weigh them down because they were handy.
