Winterizing the Garden December 13, 2008

Posted by concreteguy in gardening.

It has been cold here, so in addition to putting plastic over my square foot gardens, I have cut back our banana trees. I planted them over the summer and they did pretty well. So following some instructions I found on several websites, I cut the plants down even with the ground, covered them with mulch, and put some plastic over that to keep them safe and warm. Supposedly they should come back strong next year, bigger than before. We’ll see.

The fall/winter square foot gardens are doing pretty well. I’ll take some pics tomorrow and post them.
