Putting the Garden to Bed

It's that time of year when we wrap up the harvest and put our garden to bed. Most years I hate to see the garden season come to an end but this was a year of "plenty" and I am really ready to be finished. We just dehydrated the last of the peppers so they'll be ready for soups and casseroles this winter. I still have about three boxes of tomatoes in the garage ripening so I will have one more tomato canning session, sauce I think. At the end of each season I'm always tired, but in a good way. I really enjoy having the bounty of the garden preserved for the coming year. Before you know it I will be planning my garden for the coming year.
