[caption id="attachment_329" align="alignnone" width="300"] Fall is a busy season at Grosbeak Gardens. And sometimes, weather makes it difficult. Last year, we planted 5 new trees in our "orchard" at the end of October, and it started snowing![/caption]
The summer is the "easy time" for a garden. Harvest, weed, repeat. The hard work and nurturing in the spring give you weeks of summer feasts. When the fall comes, the work begins again.
And this year will be no exception. In fact, it'll be busier than any recent fall we've had. It is going to be another busy fall at Grosbeak Gardens, as we get the yard ready for the winter and for next year's garden. Everywhere you look, you see perennials that need to be cut back, annuals that need to be pulled up, trees that need to be pruned, and deer fencing that needs rebuilding. But just as things are being torn out, the garlic is planted. These little cloves will be next July's heads, and they are gently tucked in for their long winter sleep in the garden. Something is always growing at Grosbeak Gardens.
More to come on our fall projects as we toil our way through them.
