Slowly Winding Down

Pin It

The wind is starting to pick up on the roof so that means it's time to start wrapping up the garden for winter. I toyed with the idea (for about 2 seconds) of planting carrots or some other fall crop to extend the harvest, but I've come to the conclusion that fall vegetable gardening is just not for me, at least on this specific rooftop. It's just too exposed to the elements. As the weather gets colder it gets windier up here, which makes it an increasingly unpleasant place to spend time. Gardening for me is a pleasure, not a chore, and I'm not interested in doing anything that will make it chore, so once the wind picks up I know it's time to wind down the garden. This will be a slow process however since many plants still bear fruits. Some of the tomato plants and all of the pepper plants still have a few more vegetables to give.
