I picked the final pumpkins, I even had some babies growing; pulled up all the empty vines and stocks; planted my garlic; and covered everything with straw. Eventually I want to have a winter garden too, but I don't take care of my summer garden very well.
And I saw so many ladybugs while cleaning up! One of the garden beds had ten or so ladybugs crawling around! They must have been having an end of the year party!
