Cleaning Up The Home Garden For 2014

red peppersWell everything in our vegetable garden has been picked. The last of my pepper plants have been picked clean and now on the windowsill turning bright red. I roasted some with the supper I made last night. So tasty.

Once I was done picking the last of the veggies I started pulling out plants for the compost bin and then I started turning over a section of garden that only had sunflowers in it and had not been tilled last spring.

I turned over two rows using the garden fork. It was fairly easy but then I hit a spot that was as solid as rock. When I hit that with my garden fork the shock wave went up my left leg and nearly brought me to tears. Now I can barely walk.

It is a little better today so I’m thinking I will be fine by the weekend but I won’t be doing any walking and taking photos for a few days.
