Garden in winter- Some rest Some Greens

I have finished the leaf raking and collecting for the fall(winter underway now) and have several bags of chopped leaves hopefully cooking in the sun.  Added some water and sugar or soda to help the process.

Garden in winter

Some will add to the garden in spring, others to the compost and some to the worms. Buckets are for water + comfrey garden food. Now have 3 big comfrey plants and a few smaller ones.  Going to have great food for next summers garden.

Also have some late season greens and broccoli left to harvest and eat. Looking forward to cover it over and prepare for spring.
