I am David Epstein and welcome to our tips segment here at Growing Wisdom. This where I just sort of give you one or two little things that you might want to do this time of the year and this time of the year, in my vegetable garden which is not looking that great. I do not think I would want you here right now to see this but nonetheless, it is time to sort of begin to clean things up. So, you wan to be taking your tomato plants and removing them. Taking the tomato cages if you have them and cleaning them off, and putting them away for the year. It is really important not to let some of these stuff rot in your garden because it may have diseases, like for example, I had some problems this year with a fungus on my tomato plants. If I just let them sit all winter, I am going to let that fungus winter over as well. If you can burn it, burn it. Some towns do allow that or you can bring it to, perhaps a refuse area where you can put things like leaves and twigs and brush and give it to them so that they will take care of it.
I do not like to put this in decompose pile because then I am just spreading the disease right into the decompose pile and I am moving that back into somewhere in the yard, somewhere else in the future. The other thing you can do, depending on where you live is you could also start things like lettuce or radishes, if you have another month or two of some good sunlight and you are not going to get a frost especially if your zone seven, eight, or nine, you could do that. You could plant a few of those cool weather crop vegetables.
The other thing you can try to do is to move things inside. So, if you have basil, if you have parsley, and you want to try to dig it up and moved them inside, I have not had good luck with it. It tends to be difficult but why not, it is sort of fun. You know the other thing to do in the vegetable garden in addition to cleaning up is you might have a bunch of green tomatoes and you do not want to leave these out once it gets under 32 degrees. They will freeze and they will eventually just decay into mush. Bring them inside, you can put them in a light spot not on the window seal. You do not want these to be sitting in the sun inside because that is not good for them, they should just be light and they will tend to ripen. But what I like to do with these is sliced them up, a little bit of egg batter, some bread crumbs, olive oil, and fry them up. Fried green tomatoes are a great side dish and it is a super way to use the tomatoes that do not ripen in your garden.
