Winterizing the Garden
After the first storm of the season we have had a full day of cleaning up. Branches and derbis everywhere, mother nature did a lot of pruning. The green house made it through some very strong winds... always a concern! The next winterizing task is to attack the green house getting it ready for the cold rainy season. We grow a large amount and variety of succulents and cacti which can not survive our rain outdoors and will freeze during our rare yet possible freezing nights. Space is an issue when it comes to the green house. In case you hadn't notice from reading my post I am a collector and green house collections are one of my favorites. The plants have to share space with collections of old tools, sprinklers, water cans, signs, packaging of old gardening elements, seed boxes, buckets, pots, pots and more pots... you get the idea. This past summer our plant population has increased so I have to get in the green house and try to "re-decorate" to make room for more plants. Each season brings new jobs to do in the garden, it is a never ending wonderful adventure. What are you having to do in your garden where you live? ~Jacque
