Fall planting and planning

Well, on Monday (October 29th) I planted my garlic.  3 heads gave us 30 cloves to plant in the ground, 1" deep and 6" apart.  This filled up half of one of my 4 new raised beds.  I also planted 100 purple crocus bulbs under a deciduous tree in our front yard, so hopefully we'll have a beautiful spring welcome.

Update:  my attempts at over-wintering things failed.  Something grabbed my tuberous begonias I wanted to overwinter and my pepper plants took a whack with the cold temperatures and never recovered.  There's always next year!

We have most of our winter-prep work done outside, the leaves picked up and grass cut short.  Ready for a long winter sleep.
