Gardening is over for us here in the Midwest. Well, for me anyway :) I decided enough was enough and pulled all the big plants out and tilled it up.
Check out this article about how one New Mexico community used their old tires. Bales of tires, each bale containing 100 used tires, where placed in wet cement to create a base for erosion control along a river. In the end they used 250,000 old tires!
Ok, so back to work now! We scooped 2 tires out- about 4 trips to the garden. I wish I had access to some sort of a front loader with a scoop. That would be just too easy now wouldn't it!
I tried to make a bunch of little piles throughout so the spreading would be easier.
A little bit a raking and she's all ready for bed now. Nighty night garden, see you next spring :)
