The Mandatory Fall Chill

It has arrived on Friday’s doorstep, at least in New England. And with that crisp, fall chill in the air, a quote from Chili Davis seems appropriate for this morning. “Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.” 

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. And for all those plants that didn’t grow up the way you wanted, there is always next spring.
