So we had several days of very cold (for us, here in the Bay Area) weather and our giant tomato plant finally kicked the bucket. That was the last holdout in the garden. The rest of the plants stopped doing anything worthy of interest a month ago.
So, we can finally just toss everything and get ready to rebuild it for spring.
We have some good ideas about how to increase our garden from 32sqft. Also we hope to move the compost bins to a better location. Currently we have to go through the "chicken zone" to get to the compost. That means we have to change shoes/etc. every time.
Speaking of the chickens, they seem to be doing fine in the cold, even though we're always worried they'll freeze.
