How I did it: The soil was prepared and in raised beds from the spring. I pulled out the old tomatoes. I've learned that the quality of the late tomatoes is not worth the garden space. I had put in determinate types so they all tomatoed simultaneously anyway. I removed the old beans, broccoli, and onions. I left one broccoli that looks like it will still "head." I amended the soil with compost and some slow release fertilizer. I then planted cool weather crops like spinach, lettuce, radish, peas. Being hopeful, I planted a last cohort of cucumber and beans. With a tarp over the poles they might make it. I trimmed the pole beans away from the fence so that the deer won't eat them as food become more scarce. And then I put in some garlic. The garlic will actually grow thru the winter and should be ready next June. I used organic garlic from the supermarket. I had no luck with "normal garlic" and I think they might put a chemical on it to prevent it from sprouting. Read how I did it… 21 months ago
