Combination of increased decrepitude and increased pest pressure in location with bad drainage. I’m giving it up.
Didn’t plant any fall crops. Yesterday, pulled the last tomatoes and stuff - they weren’t producing. Raked the straw from the potato bed - a total loss, that - over the ground of the garden.
Today, sowed 2# of oat seed into the straw. Plan is - oats will die back with November frost, will then sow prairie flower seeds into oats.
Strawberries not yet all taken out, as it started to rain yest, but I figured that rain was just right for the oat seeds.
