It never fails to surprise me how FAST this time of year flies by. The onset of the holidays (yes, see, Halloween has already come and gone!) takes up your conscious and unconscious life to a degree that time in the garden just slips by, sometimes. And, if you want to be crowded into blooms in early Spring….November is a good time to plan your seedbeds. December and January you will be busy starting your seeds, taking care of your indoor garden and those in the greenhouse, too (if you are lucky enough to have one.) You are going to be busy indoors all Winter. So get out your hoe in the next three weeks, take a soil sample and send it to your Master Gardener volunteers at your nearest extension office and stake off your dream (see above photos).
