Winston Churchill once said, “If you have an important point to make, don't try to be subtle or clever. Use a pile driver. Hit the point once. Then come back and hit it again. Then hit it a third time - a tremendous whack.”
So if you haven’t been paying attention, the subtle changes of fall surround you. And at any moment, especially in New England, you can be hit with that point more than once. It only takes a light frost to damage the delicate, fragile annuals or take out those last few standing tomatoes that struggle to hold on. So while these subtle changes may be moving slowly through your city or town, don’t let them hit you with a ‘tremendous whack’. Best for gradual progression; chip away at the fall to-do lists. Here are a few links from past blog posts so you can ease into the subtle changes of fall rather than have it hit you all at once.
You can find more of these nuggets by using the blog’s search button but these links should give you a head start and an ending point, too. In the interim, make time for a cup of the delicious fall cider from your local apple stop because just around that subtle bend - winter garden chores to boot!
