A Quick Tip for Fall

Clean your containers well at the end of the growing season. This prevents the spread of disease, can kill eggs laid by bugs, and in the spring they’ll be ready to use when you need them.

Great way to spend a mild but rainy day. You can also organize all your empty plastic plant containers and perhaps discard the odd or cracked ones (they can be recycled). Clean and organize your tools and prep area while you are at it. I love working in my open-air barn with the rain pitter pattering on the metal roof.

Your barn sounds wonderful! How nice to have a spacious sheltered area like that to work.

I do like it. We get a lot of rain in the fall/winter but it doesn't get unbearably cold and is usually mild enough to work comfortably outdoors if you can stay dry.
