Late October: ready to cut it down & wrap it up
The first three raised beds on Oct. 30

Beds 2 through 5, same day. Right: rebuilt bed 4, Nov. 21, 2017

We decided to clean up the planters along the inside of the fence and put down sod (planters in place, above).

We also dug up the day lillies along the outside of the fence (just one planter left, above).

We ran into quite a bit more gravel and rock than we had expected. So the trenching took a while. Pictures from Oct. 30, 2017.
Left: how things looked along the fence on Nov. 9, 2017, evened out, ready to plant in the spring.

Below are the last good pictures of the dahlias, Oct. 16, 2016. They looked pretty good for another 2 weeks.
Our first killing frost came Nov. 8, 2017.
