Fall garden work.

Last year I filled my compost bin with leaves.
It took a few months, but eventually I ended up with some nice compost. 
I used the compost to fill my raised garden beds.  I do this every year.  I fill them to the top in the fall, and by the end of the following summer they are 3" lower.  I don't know where it goes.  Maybe it just settles, or maybe it continues to break down.  Anyway, I have a free resource, so it's not a big deal.
I think this PVC drip irrigation might have to come out next year.  I pulled the end cap off and the inside of the pipe was green with algae.
I have a couple of pepper plants hanging on even though it's November.
This bed contains oregano that I can't get rid of.  I cut it back severely last year and even dug half of it out with a shovel.  It's still going. 
I still have a number of tomato plants producing.  I'm hoping that the tomatoes turn red before we get any frost.
