|At the start of the day, all the crops were still in the ground|
|At the end of the day, all dead plant material cleared out,|
cover crop seed spread and mulch on top.
(Note the rubberized rain suits!)
So that is what Mama Nature provided on the last HP work party of the season. HP employees have been visiting the garden on a monthly basis since April of this season (they helped out last year too!) and each of the prior work parties was beautiful. As we cleared and chopped up the beds of Solanaceae crops (tomatoes, eggplants, peppers, tomatillos), the rain softened the ground for us and then helped water the cover crop seeds we planted in the cleared space. Now my only hope is that the roving packs of ducks haven't eaten all the seed!
