It is that time of the year again. Time to clean up and clear out the garden for another season. Our garden provides us with such beauty and joy, it is so sad to shut it down. I dream of living in a part of the world where we could grow vegetables successfully all year round. Of course, that would mean we wouldn’t experience snow…so I guess I’ll settle for the 4 or 5 months of growing that we do get. The best part about closing the garden is planning for the next growing season. Now is the time to think back and take note of 3 things – what did we have too much of, what did we have too little of and what were we missing. Answer these questions and you’ve got a garden plan for next season.
