Garden Cleanout.

He does the roosters and I *cull* the unwanted plants.

This week I have been pulling up the corn, so far none has been good enough for us to eat but the chooks like it.
The brocolli has been growing for so long, I can't remember when it was planted but it is now getting bug-ridden so that is going.
The beans are dying off so they came up.  I have saved quite a few dry pods though and will try and grow them some time.
The dead tomatoes are gone.
A pumpkin plant that was doing nothing but choking some Pepinos went.
Most of the seeding lettuce plants are in the pen with the chickens.  I've left a couple to collect seeds from.

Still a bit too do but most of it will have to wait until next weekend.


  1. At least the chickens will get things they like. Isn't it the end of summer there is AU? At least you did not do a face plant in poop like I did this morning.Can you grow lettuce in the winter?

  2. End of Summer yes but still hot here.
    I can't grow hearting lettuce very well during the heat but if they self seed they don't do too bad.
