November is often thought of as the month of gratitude. As gardeners, we are thankful for the warm sun, fertile soil, quenching rain, and fruitful growing seasons. The gift of time we received this year has allowed for preparing new gardens, planting new seeds, and renewing a love for playing in the dirt. This rediscovered joy found in the simple things is truely a reason to be thankful this year.
As one year ends and another begins, we hope you carry a love of gardening into the new year. Now is the time to install raised garden beds before the ground freezes, plant spring bulbs, and to compost leaves into your soil to prepare for new growing season. As we anticipate the upcoming cooler months, take a moment to be grateful for all your garden has done this year.
