how goes the yard and garden preparation for winter?
November already and I have not finished with mine
Triming garden beds, putting some large pots in the garage, unheated.
Other pots into the unheated mostly sun room. I collect bagged leaves, as long as they are dry ones from the neigbhourhood and dump them on two of my garden beds that are close to large oak trees
The oak trees take so much out of the soil, but I find that if I put a layer of several inches deep leaves over these beds, it helps the Hostas and Helliboris etc. that are in these beds to grow well.
Without the leaves it seemed to me the Oak trees take everything out of the soil
.A pond to drain yet, needs doing Lots of bits and pieces yet to do
Sometimes it seems it never ends.
But it does for me, when we get that first big snow fall, which could be any day.
Is a bit sad that I never have everything finished up, but as well I am happy that it is all done with for another season, spring time.
How is it going with some of you fellow gardeners?
