Farm Update
This week on the farm I'm pulling up all of the annuals and digging dahlias. I'll be planting a late cover crop that will survive the winter.  We are expecting our first frost this weekend and the whole family is excited to have wood burning in the fireplace.  I'm super excited to have things outside slow down a little so I can hunker down and do serious planning for next season. There are lots of exciting things that I will be announcing over the winter months.
Tip of the month!
Clean up those gardens.  A good Fall clean up can make for a much easier spring! It also reduces weeds, disease and garden pests that like to overwinter in plant debris.  Pull out those spent plants and weeds that got the better of you and through them into the compost pile.  If you have some compost ready you can add it to the soil now or wait until spring.  However, I do not like to leave my soil bare and naked all winter.  As mentioned in my previous newsletter planting a cover crop helps prevent erosion of your beautiful garden soil and keeps nutrients from running off never to be found.  I'm throwing down some clover and oats this week and crossing my fingers that they will grow despite the frost.  Last year my cover crop stayed green all winter long.
Tuesday a friend and I cleaned out the annuals so you'll just have to look at pretty flowers from this year.
