With the sun setting earlier and our garden foliage becoming tired and “crispy,” nature is telling us autumn is just around the corner. Just as our gardens turn a page, the close of summer means the anticipation of school for many families. As grownups we may be long past blackboards and crayons, but isn’t it true that gardeners never graduate? Deep down, we are lifelong learners. Do any of us ever stop researching, experimenting, note taking – and occasionally swearing at the mayhem nature can inflict on our backyard SFGs?
Here’s to being thankful for our garden classrooms – enjoy the three “how to” blogs we share below.
