Well here we go entering the quieter season for us here in the Midwest.  Still enjoying some beautiful weather here though!  

In the gardens, I need to put things away but I’m letting some of the hardier annuals shine until they can’t anymore.  I need to get my cold frame cleaned up.  Will start my aerogarden soon with herbs, I have never grown them before in there!  

What are you needing to do this Fall?

Can you believe it is November already?  This was one of our most productive years for fruit & produce, and the larder is overflowing. The gardens are all put to bed for the winter. Getting ready to start the winter greens in the greenhouse.

The weather is going to be gorgeous for the next few days here so I hope to take advantage of it!

All the garden beds have been prepped and put to sleep until next summer. I started composting some of the many jack o' lanterns that we have here and continue to mulch leaves.

I cleaned the garden tools and have put most of them away. I didn't quite get the cold frame built like I had hoped too this fall. This is sadly a project that might be put on the back burner for me, but we shall see. That is a project that I would LOVE to get done this fall. (Fingers crossed) Smile

The future compost is quickly falling from the trees. A few days ago it was a beautiful Red Maple, but today it is mostly leaves on the ground waiting to be collected and composted.

Yes—Saturday brought all my leaves down (early) and put a lot of them into the neighbors yard!  Sorry!  

My gorgeous English Ivy all fell down.  It is headed to the compost heap.  

I had a major allergic (ITCHYYYYYY) reaction while trying to plant my last tulip bulbs and daffodil—it was the tulips.  I had to stop after only getting a dozen in the ground.  Washing all another’s—at first I thought it might have been nettles????  Not sure.  

Will try again, wearing gloves.  Being way more careful.  Jeesh!

Yikes SR, that sounds uncomfortable!!! 

The majority of the leaves are down around here too after that crazy wind Saturday! I managed to collect 35 lawn bags full of leaves from my neighbors and mulched them all for compost along with a five 33 gallon garbage bins full of mulched leaves from my own yard. I am hoping that is enough to mulch my beds throughout the summer and have enough "browns" for my compost heap until next October! LOL

For me, there isn't much more gardening left to do, so I am putting everything away until the next growing season.

Take care of yourself and I hope you have the chance to finish getting all those bulbs in!

Right, Jam, there isn’t a whole lot to do after clean up.  I have not done all, so I do have some stuff to complete…

OK, so tried the whole planting bulbs again—same weird allergic reaction????  And I wore gloves? Must be something else….not sure.  But with the help of one of my kids got the spring blooming tulips, daffodils, hyacinths and narcissus’s in for next Spring!  

Otherwise, just need to clean up asparagus bed and figure out what to do with the strawberries….not producing like they should.  May be my fault.  

Cold on the way!  Bundle up!

It is snowing here this morning, the first snowfall of the season. Glad all of the beds are put to sleep for the winter, and the greenhouse if finished.

You northern folks are forced to take a winter break. Smile (Well, maybe not OG with his new greenhouse.)

As I have written before, where I live, snow is something to go see, not live in. I can imagine how tiring it can.

I love seeing everyone's snow photos. Please feel free to post snow photos here:

Hints of normalcy today temp-wise.  Everything is still waiting for me to come out and end the season!  We had mid 40s today.

Pulled the last of the Kyoto Red Carrots, and had some of them candied for dinner.  It wasn't easy digging them out with the soil frozen solid, but the carrots sure were delicious! Very Happy

Checking the gardens today while we are having beautiful weather, and got quite a surprise with the Rhubarb plants.  They had all frozen back a couple weeks ago when we had nighttime temps down into the low 20's, and I cleaned of the old stalks & leaves and covered them with some fresh compost. Today I noticed that they are sending up new shoots, like they should be doing next March or April.  Hope it doesn't weaken the roots with them trying to grow with this warm weather we've been experiencing.

It’s super cold here, air temp is -9*F, windy too—not sure what the windchill is but it’s cold.  My little birds are huddled on my front porch under the winter-overturned wicker chair and ottoman.  It dropped like 48* here overnight, they are confused I’m sure!  Thank goodness the power has stayed on so far.  

We are under a Level 3 Winter Weather/Snow emergency here.  Gonna make fudge!

Same here Scorpio. Got down to -6*F last night.with highwinds and -30*F wind chill. We're all the way up to zero now. Really warming up now... "NOT".   I just went out to the mailbox, about 40 feet from the door and wasn't sure if I was going get back to the house. That 30 to 40 mph wind gust felt like needles sticking in my face. 

Good thing I had on two pairs of socks, gloves. long Johns, insulated hunting jacket and a wool hat. I thought I was going to get blown away. I'm so dam skinny, when I go outside, I have to go whichever way the wind is blowing.   Very Happy

Windy and cold with lots of drifting snow here. The greenhouse door latch froze and I had to use hand sanitizer to free it.
