It has arrived on Friday’s doorstep, at least in

Many folks dislike autumn because it signals that our gardens hit the ‘Over the hill’ mark of aged and tired. But everything needs a resting period including our soil and plants. But before you let the garden be, here’s an archived blog from last October for help in getting ready for the next growing season. http://blog.bilowzassociates.com/2010/10/turning-over-new-leaf.html And for all those plants that didn’t grow up the way you wanted, there is always next spring.
