Preparing Your Vegetable Garden for Winter

"The breezes taste Of apple peel. The air is full Of smells to feel- Ripe fruit, old footballs, Burning brush, New books, erasers, Chalk, and such. The bee, his hive, Well-honeyed hum, And Mother cuts Chrysanthemums. Like plates washed clean With suds, the days Are polished with A morning haze."-  John Updike, September

Now that the first day of fall has come and's time to think about preparing the garden for winter. What's on your list for fall chores today?
