For many of you in colder climates the fall season is already upon your doorstep and time is passing quickly. Everything you do now will determine the type of garden you will have next season. Honestly. Gardening is not a single season chore, but rather a year round endeavor that requires waxing and waning amounts of physical labor. Sure, winter isn’t a time most of us think of the garden, but what better time to sit down with your gardening journal (I’m sure by now I’ve harped on that point enough that you have made one or purchased one) and start laying out next spring’s garden on paper. How about getting a good compost pile started so it can cook over the winter so that your soil will be rejuvenated come next spring? Old World Gardens has a great list of 4 fall chores you should be doing now and our friend Angi at Schneider Peeps has a great post on fall composting you shouldn’t miss. Have a great day and God bless!
