Now is the time for removing, mowing down, and prepping to plant again after winter. All the cleanup of beds, repair of tools, construction, and maintenance is the final big push before snow comes to settle in. Anything that can't be brought under cover or inside has to be done in the next few weeks and if not it will have to wait until spring.
It can be bittersweet but also cathartic as you don't need to worry about pulling weeds around delicate seedlings or gently reaching between many stems to harvest a bloom. This it rip everything out time (except those lovely perennials which don't need much work any time of the year!)
And anything that isn't ripped out is mowed, mulched, and tarped to help it compost down before planting time next year.
The kittens provide endless entertainment and mayhem. #siblings
