Finally picked the rest of my garden and pulled all the plants out. I have an old cultivator from a Bolens walk behind tractor I rigged to use with my slot hitch. Seems to work ok as long as there's some weight on it.

That looks pretty good, pharmer. Will you just let it lay or do you plan to do more before winter hits?

I might put in some winter rye. In the spring I burn all my brush and fallen branches from the winter in the middle of it. Then my 86 yr old neighbor comes over on his JD 950 and wheel harrows it for me. He still loves to work (play) on his tractor too. After that I use my Troybilt tiller to make the hills/rows to start the cycle all over again.

Sounds good. I'm trying to gather all the info I can. I hope to have a better producing garden next year. Still haven't gotten a ripe tomato.

Kenny P , our garden wasn't like it usually is either. too much rain in the spring and was late getting it planted.But, got seat time on the cub cadet. Looking forward to next year. Good luck with yours.

I had an awesome crop of tomatoes, zucchini, winter squash, cucumbers, and tons of peppers. Homemade salsa was a huge success. Pumpkins were the disappointment this year. Best garden in a few years.

Picked the last 4 peppers, last of the Swiss Chard is in the tub (shh, she's already a little ouchy today) and got to mowing everything. Then I plowed (in a torrential Downpour for a few minutes) and ta-da, the garden is ready for spring tilling.

So much more to do, but not until the rain quits. I'm cold.

We grabbed the last few tomatoes and peppers, then left the gate open for the neighborhood deer and rabbits to clean up. Our dog (miniature pincher) was chomping on some tomatoes while we were down there, likes peppers, apples, carrots, pears too. Oh and we had a real good season too. Got two pumpkins over 70 pounds, lots and lots and lots of toms, peppers, corn, carrots all did well.
