Garden Clean-Up

Last weekend we finally gave up on it ever raining and watered the garden so the soil would be soft enough to pull out the tomato and pepper plants easily.
I  prefer to burn the tomato debris instead of composting it to better destroy any disease.  The fire department gave us permission to burn despite it being so parched.  I wasn't too worried about having a little fire in the middle of the garden, though, having just watered.

As you can see, there were even a few good tomatoes to snack upon while I worked!
Here's how the tomato patch looked at the end of the day -- ready to dismantle the supports and plant the garlic.

I like to burn in the little garden too...just seems to kill things a bit better and well it feels like fall ...
