Long time, no post...fall is well on its way in central IL. The garden has long since frosted over more than once now. My thoughts have turned to winter and upcoming snows. Before I know it, the garden catalogs will be coming in the mail and the garden dreams will start anew.
My potting shed has been neglected since the seed starting season. It is in need of some TLC. This was probably the worst garden season that I can remember. It seemed that the only thing that thrived were the weeds, peppers and cucumbers. Japanese beetles ate my raspberry foliage down to the sticks! I really need to remember to get some milky spore.
On to winter....gardening as we know it may be over, but Mother Nature has plenty left up her sleeve!
