Putting garden beds to bed

As mentioned in earlier post, my garden is starving for attention. I have been working so much that I haven't been in the garden and it is a mess.

These are suppose to be my garden boxes!

3 boxes weeded and the pile of weeds for the chickens!

Here we are, all tucked away for winter. I have been trying the Ruth Stout method of no weeding just adding layers of mulch. It seems to work if you have time and the material to keep adding as the weeds poke through. I have been doing this for a couple years now and it works really good, just as you get that layer on and keep adding. 3boxes done about 20 more to go!!!
