The Garden As of Mid-September 2023

The garden as of mid-September. I pulled out all the vegetables in the center raised beds and turned the soil. Lots of worms, which is a good thing. You can kind of make out the empty tomato cages in the foreground. Planting winter rye in the boxes to help rejuvenate the soil. I will pull up the zinnias in a couple weeks. For now, they are still blooming.

The heat came on last night. Red and brown leaves are creeping into the foliage. The last couple of nights we have had a fire in the woodstove, so it feels suddenly like autumn. 

It's been just over two weeks since I first tested positive for Covid, and my energy is finally getting back. After working in the garden, we took an hour-long walk in the woods yesterday and then I made a bit of dinner. None of this was do-able as of a couple of days ago.

Glad to hear you're feeling better and things are getting back to normal.
