Neighbours talking over the garden gate has long been a tradition. They share gardening tips, complain about the weather and pests yet are ever eager to discuss their gardens. That is what I had in mind when creating this blog. So stop by my garden gate to find out the latest happenings in my garden.

Happy Gardening!

Winterizing the Gardens

Now that we've had our first hard frost followed by rather cool nights but pleasant days, my thoughts have turned to winterizing the garden.  Here's my to do list for winterizing the gardens this year keeping in mind the house is on the market so I may be setting up a new garden at new home next year.  As you can see there is still a bit more to do.

  • bring in plants
  • shut off water to the gardens
  • drain self-watering system
  • bring in hoses
  • bring in garden ornaments
  • final mulch cutting
  • final bed clean-out
  • gather an herbs that can still be harvested

Happy Gardening!
