Winter is here!
Well it has been a good growing season here in Camp Verde. Some things did great other not so good. This weekend we are expecting some really cold weather if the predictors are right. Therefore, I guess it is the end for my last growing tomato plant (pictured); everything else is gone with the exception of my spinach, lettuce and garlic. Time to put away the shovel, spade, and think about what I will plant next year and how I am going to do things a little different. I will miss the garden, but it is this time of year when I can take a break and reflect on how things did. For those of you down south that can still grow many veggies, good luck with your gardens. The fruit trees and grapes are loosing their leaves so it will be time for dormant oil and lots of trimming, so I will still be busy. Then I will be starting on the 20 or so rose bushes. Gardening is never really done!
