I am very aware of the sun disappearing earlier every day. I'm also aware that I have been 'putting up' foods to enjoy during the winter months. I was not aware my plants were coming to the end of their life cycles. I began noticing yesterday morning when I pulled brown bean plants and tossed them in the compost bin. This morning I begrudgingly pulled the sad tomato plant and threw it in the woods behind my house. After cleaning up the mess I made, I sat down. Only to notice my cucumber plant needed to be pulled as well. I foraged the last three cucumbers and pulled it out, dragging it behind me to the woods.
