It is sad and very difficult for me to close the garden up for the year. We put all the statues away and this weekend I will take and dump all the pots. They actually have snow predicted for today. I do not need a forecast from any other source than my body. I am all aches. The cold bothers me not only because I do not like the cold, but it makes me flare. I like fall when it is warm and the trees are full of color. November through March are not my favorite months.
We had a cherry tomato plant that produced green tomatoes which Chip and Dale and Mrs. Bunny thought were excellent. We actually ate about five. I brought all the herbs into the enclosed back porch until I am ready to process them. I prefer them fresh and so they will stay there until it really gets cold. It smells so good out there.
I have one new rose bush I put in pretty late into the season. I was not sure if it was going to take. But it presented me with two late blooming roses. I anguished on whether to cut them but I did and brought them in to my writing spot. They have steady opened and giving me great joy. Their color is amazing. They are helping as I transition in to the cold months.
