Preparing our Garden for Winter

I was able to pick up some Everbearing Strawberries the last week of September to extend our strawberry patch for next year. I added 15 new plants.
 After such a hard summer, I can't believe how gorgeous and full both my patches are looking.
 We ripped out the rest of our vegetation a couple weeks ago and began to fall plow.
 Here is a picture of one our hard working tractors doing her job.
 Hubby got the plow all painted up nice and he could get it all dirty
 The garden look so nice all plowed and ready for winter. Although Justin and I both commented on how much bigger is looks all plowed up with nothing planted in it.
I'm not sure about your household, but we are already beginning to talk about what to do for next year. We are planning to hold a "homestead" meeting here soon and hash out some goals and projects for the coming year. All I have left to do is get my garlic in the ground! I should have did it two weeks ago...I kinda forgot! I'm hoping at the end of this week to get em' in the ground.

I love, love, love these pics. There's something especially intriguing about your husband and his late model IH Cub tractor.
You are indeed a lucky woman to have such a handsome mate and amazing tractor!

Thanks for keeping us posted.

Hey Maureen,

That's an early model Cub... The late models are all made out of tin foil and plastic. It's nice to see that there are people out there that agree with me about how lucky Danielle is to have me around.
