Container Gardening - Fall Cleanup and Plant Care

Now that the harvest season is upon us, it's time to clean up and prepare for winter.

You may be all too aware of the impact that the COVID-19 pandemic had on the world, and particularly on agricultural production. In fact, many countries were forced to adopt a lockdown, which had serious repercussions on the food supply. Many crops were lost, especially those which were planted in the field. Some estimate that 18 to 40% of the world's annual crop yield was lost as a direct result of the pandemic.

What exactly is a lockdown?

As the name implies, a lockdown is a period of confinement or isolation in which individuals are prevented from leaving their homes. Those who are allowed to leave are under strict quarantine supervision.

A major purpose of a lockdown is to prevent the spread of an infectious disease. In the case of COVID-19, social distancing is critical in keeping the number of infections low. This is especially important if you live in a small community or village, as travel can quickly turn a good portion of the population into carriers.

The combination of an epidemic and strict government regulation makes for a worrying scenario. Fortunately, we're now in the other end of the scenario. As countries like the UK begin to slowly ‘re-open', life goes back to normal. The food production industry has also adapted to this new reality, with many companies increasing their output.

The damage done to the agricultural industry was truly significant, and the need for fall cleanup is now more important than ever before. Detritus and dead plant material which were lying around the house before the pandemic will now need to be taken out. This includes rotting vegetables and fruit from the garden, and cut flowers which were previously floating around in jam jars.

There are a number of benefits to growing your own vegetables and fruit. The first is that you know exactly what's going into each meal. It's also great for the environment. Finally, you might even find that eating seasonal produce is good for your health.

If you live in an area with an exceptionally mild climate, you could grow a selection of summer vegetables and fruits such as tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. These plants require very little in the way of sunshine, and very little water. This allows you to effectively ‘go green' inside your home during the summer months.

On the other side of the spectrum, you could grow a selection of winter vegetables and fruits such as cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kale. You won't get very many tomatoes or cucumbers grown outside during the winter months, as they require very warm temperatures to produce.

What about the weeds? You will need to get rid of the weeds in your garden as they will compete with your vegetables and fruit for space. The most effective way to do this is with a garden hoe. Many farmers use chemical herbicides on their crops, but these can be harmful to both humans and the environment. Many people have turned to non-chemical weed control, either manually pulling the weeds by hand or using an automated weeding machine. These tools will be useful for the fall cleanup. If possible, you should consider investing in organic produce to avoid any unwanted effects on the environment.

Familiar Items Can Be Used In A New Way

It's important to note that familiar items in an unfamiliar place can have a completely different meaning. For example, the ‘robot' may not be what you were thinking of when I mentioned pulling weeds. These devices are commonly used to spray vegetation with high-pressure water to remove unwanted plants. It is important to understand the purpose of these items before you decide to use them in your garden, as they may not be suitable for your needs. Always read the instructions thoroughly so that you don't end up using the wrong equipment or the wrong application method.

Why Is It Important To Get The Right Equipment?

The right equipment is important for a number of reasons, but mostly for safety concerns. When working in your garden, you will need to wear gloves to prevent your skin from becoming irritated by the organic matter and fertilizer you might come into contact with. If organic matter ishes off, it can cause irritation to the skin. In most cases, this will be an unnecessary discomfort for you, and it's best to prevent it by wearing gloves.

There are also specific gloves made for gardening which are thicker and more durable than your average pair of house gloves.
