  • Cool start best for bulbs

    Don’t jump the gun when it comes to planting spring flowering bulbs this fall. Spring bulbs are best planted once soil temperatures cool to about 55 degrees, so wait until we have had at least two weeks of sweater weather.  
    If it is too cool outside without a jacket then it’s just right for planting bulbs.
    So, what do our spring and summer bulbs need in a year’s worth of growth and care?

  • Keep your leaves and use as compost, mulching

    Leaf raking is an autumn chore that only children enjoy because they get to undo it in one fell swoop.  
    We rake and pile and they jump. I propose a new approach that just may make us all happy: adults can still rake a little, children can still play and trees will benefit from some mulch and fertilizer.  
    At the farm, raking leaves is passé; we let them stay where they fall (with reason, of course) which is usually beneath their canopy.
