Our garden is seriously winding down at home. There are still lots of tomato plants with green tomatoes longing for warmer days to ripen up, but everything else is looking pretty scraggly. I found this great fall garden checklist that I thought was very helpful in terms of making sure we do all that we’re supposed to do outside around this time of year. I don’t know about you, but I find it easy to slack off a bit once there isn’t anything growing out in the garden anymore. I have noticed that things go much easier in the spring when I spend a little extra time making sure everything is cleaned up and trimmed down before winter hits.

Side note: I tend to practice the lazy gardener’s method to ripening all of those green tomatoes.
