Last weekend, we cleaned up some of the outdoor pots and raised beds.
In the raised beds, we pulled out our teepees and tomato cages, and the ropes on the vine frame. Then pulled/mowed down all the overgrown weeds. We still need to till and fertilize and cover for the winter, but it was a nice start to at least get rid of the eyesore that was the raised beds.
We emptied the outdoor pots that were fried and added some pansies around the house. Depending on the severity of the winter, we can usually keep those alive until spring. Especially in pots that I can bring close to the house when it gets below freezing.
I repotted the eucalyptus into a larger pot and brought inside. It was parched and my hope is to nurse it back to life over the winter. I’ve put it in a sunny location so it will receive lots of sunshine, yet hopefully stay in a more temperate environment so it can regain health.
And our kale is growing stronger! I might move this to the back of the house for more sunshine as the weather gets cooler, but we are still receiving high 70’s/ very sunny days so they will stay in the front of the house, on the shady side, for the next month or two.
