It is late October, almost Halloween. We've cleaned up the yard some, and the gardens, but we're still waiting on the leaves left to fall. Everything is on time, I'm just anxious to get everything set for winter since I know it is inevitable. The hanging plants, front and back, have been tossed as well as some of the potted plants. And I've mulched many of the poor looking hostas so far, frosts will kill the rest and the lily of the valley greens along the garage and I will mulch them with my string trimmer, too. Leaves will be added eventually.
Kate got the west garden strawberries and herbs laid out with straw for the winter yesterday.
And in the east garden she got the garlic planted and covered with straw and a screen last weekend. Also the other day she mulched plants and replanted some stump flowers to the garden for winter. If they make it then they get replanted in spring.
Another look around the back after the break.
