Last week was all about end of summer clean up, and fall garden preparation. We finished clearing out all of this season's blackberry canes, and we got all of next season's blackberry canes trained up on the trellis system. This system allows us to lay down the canes and cover them in order to successfully winter-over next summer's blackberries. It's a lot of work, but it is a labor of love.
We bush hogged, cleared and tilled several summer production beds that were finished for the season, and we prepped our movable tunnels for this fall and winters greens production. We have begun planning and preparing for cover crops to go into several beds on the farm, to help us improve soil structure and health over the winter. Things are slowing down for right now, but it won't be too many weeks before we are into a new rhythm of fall and winter production and harvest.
