Putting It To Rest... Almost

Monthly Camper Roundup


It's towards the end of the season, now, and I am starting to put things away, and begin the "winterize" process, here at the campsite. Daily, it is cool, and raw. I've wrapped the outdoor grille for the winter.

I have a few planters I use here for growing lettuces and spinach. They've all been picked over, and I am not replanting them... so, I've emptied, and cleaned those up for the season

Below: There's a few other Tigerella, on the vine, and even some flower buds, too!


In my herb bed, I have added some nutrients, a little compost, and a little fertilized soil, as a top dressing before winter.

Below: the Sage, Thyme, and Parsley

I have quite a few things to finish outside... except, right now? I am going to hide inside, from the raw October winds and rains.

I have a good selection of cucumber, and I am going to take advantage of my indoor time, and make some pickles. Probably Bread and Butter, as that's my favorite... although, we go thru more Dill here at the house... maybe that? We'll see, next post!


To DO, at the camper:

• Ladder, sweep roof of pine needles and branches

• Take down screen sides

• empty flower pots for the season

• Final harvest

• Cut growth and compost old vegetable greens

• Empty Fabric Grow Bags

• Cover Outdoor furniture, and freezer

• Close up Awning

I am sure there are many little items I am missing... I'll add them as they come to me.


Come fall, as you put your gardens to be, what steps do YOU take?

We are thinking alike this week. I cleared some of my beds and put down some mulch around plants that will stay for the winter. I called it quits on the tomatoes though. Pulled up the plants and set aside some of the green tomatoes to try green tomato recipes. I'm curious... do you close up camper and leave at compground over the winter? or haul back south with you?

We close up and leave it here over winter. It's actually much bigger than my truck can safely haul. We actually only lie a couple hours away near Boston, but the camper is a great weekend, week getaway at Cape Cod.
