It's Finished for 2017

The garden is DONE!
I'm still getting Okra, but all other crops are finished.
Beds are cleaned out, black plastic put down on the beds to kill grass and weeds and seeds left in the dirt. 
When it's time to till the ground for over-wintering in October,  I'll take all that up and turn the ground over then.
But it has been a very good year around here.  The freezer is full and the pantry shelves are stocked as we look forward to Fall and Winter.  Always nice to be eating a fresh squash casserole, or a big bowl of peas, "fresh from the garden" in January!
