Fall Cleanup Question
Hello everyone. I don't post here very often, but I enjoy all your pics! I am experiencing my yearly struggle with putting the garden to bed. I hate to pull out/cup off plants that are still greenish or annuals that are still slightly blooming. I want to hold on to the garden as long as I can. However, then suddenly fall has run into early winter and I don't want to go out because it is too cold or wet. It looks like we will be having a later frost, but that just means all of a sudden it will be very cold. When you have a cottage garden, there is a lot of debris to clean up. This year I was still cleaning gardens the second or third week in June and that is just too late. I had vowed to get it all done this fall, but am now vacillating. How to you judge when is the best time? How do you make decisions about what to cut back when?
Oh, and just for fun, a shot of my early morning misty "Monet" garden.
