time to pre-prep the garden for next year - the purchase of a rear tine
tiller has affected my decision . The only thing concrete is where the
strawberries will be - they ain't movin' . Everything else will be
turned under and planted with something , except a small patch which
will be planted in garlic . The current wire trellis (for beans) will be
pulled out and relocated - if I use it at all next year .

Yes , I'm old

Get outta my woods !

Most folks here (western NC) plant winter rye this time of year, then mow it and turn it under in the spring.
