In the race against frost at our high altitude, it seems the growing season is over just as it is getting started. With merely 90-ish days of outdoor productive gardening time, we must be vigilant about our timing and resources. In this issue, I share harvesting techniques and provide instruction for putting your garden to bed with the goal of being prepared for a full growing season next year. If you have not yet built a garden bed, the autumn is a great time to start. Building a garden bed now will provide for a more settled, healthy garden come next spring.
