Letting Go…..Of the Garden

Every October, I bid farewell to my garden. To be honest, I am not sure why I am sorry to see it put away for the winter.

Every August and September I can oodles of tomatoes and preserve piles of pickles. I fight through nasty weeds whose names all end in “bur”. Every year at least one (and usually 3 or 4) brilliant new experiments fail.

But, when the weather forecast calls for frost, I swing into action like a doctor trying to save a patient…charge to 300…clear! A box of old sheets and blankets is brought out and draped over plants that I especially want to save. These plants are usually far more work than they are worth.

Help! Is there a 12-step program for gardeners?!?
