Fall Clean up - Weeds be Gone!

Its time for fall clean up.  All of the melon vines were all dying and stopped producing fruit.  The garden was full of weeds also that were in the vines.  Its hard to weed melons without trampling all the vines.    My helper and I spent 3 hours weeding and pulling vines and fill the back of my truck.   We hauled them to the dump because of all the weeds seeds (mostly foxtail).   I don't have a compost pile yet and didn't want piles of vegetation lying around.   The garden looks nice with all the weeds gone.  I wish it would stay that way.
