It's the last week of September and we are finally enjoying a bit of cooler weather. I'm starting to do some end of season cleanup on each bed which involves removing all of the spent plants & weeds and applying a topping of compost. Then, of course, I stand back and admire that nice clean bed which is full of potential for next year :)
One of the beds that I cleared out was the sickest of the tomato beds - Bed #2. I didn't actually harvest a lot from that bed as it's production was pretty much done. Bed #1 is also in rapid decline, but there are a few large tomatoes in it. I'm waiting just until they start to show a bit of colour, then I'll be picking them and clearing out the bed.
