Cleaning out the greenhouse for fall planting!

You can see to the right that I have cleaned out two of the raised beds.  They were tomatoes and cantaloupes. After removing the old plants I started shoveling in some fresh new compost.

With the most of the vines cleared out of the beds in the south southwest side, the new seedlings should be shaded with indirect light in the morning but should get some good light in the afternoon.

Looking at the front bed, there is a good 5 inches of compost on top.  The mushroom compost shrank and compacted considerably over the season.
