A Beautiful Day, Week, Month, Season

November 14th, 2016

This fall has been perfect, the days are in the 40’s or 50’s and the nights are in the 20’s or 30’s. The sun is shining most days, which is nice since it’s only out for around 10 hours a day now. With all the beautiful weather I’ve been able to get a ton of garden chores finished up.

Usually, this time of year, I’m trying to prioritize the garden chores that need done vs. the ones that can wait for spring. This year I’m going to be able to get them all finished and extra things that weren’t even on my list. I’m enjoying every last bit of nice weather in the garden, it won’t be long until the snow flies. I am looking forward to swapping my garden boots for snow shoes when that comes!

How has this season been in your garden this year?

    Yes, the weather is mild here in Nebraska as well. It’s been a perfect Fall with long brilliant colors. The weather people contribute the Fall display to very little rain, warm temperatures, and hardly any wind. It’s been the longest most beautiful Fall for as long as I can remember.

    I probably could have left my gardens in for another full month but I was ready to be done with them and it gave a much extended time for clean up just like where you live. It’s probably been the best garden cleanup year in the last five years. It’s been a very successful year and I’m glad to drift into the Winter months. Once the holidays are over the basement garden season begins. I’ll be growing 18 X 24 inch beds of Winter greens for salads in my basement under grow lights. A nice fresh salad in January makes for a Winter delight.

    Have a great Maine Fall day.
