Planning for cool season overhaul
I have decided that this fall and winter I need to make some serious changes in my gardens, I don't have enough time to do everything that needs to be done and the plants (and my state of mind) are suffering for it.
My number one priority is to get an irrigation system before next summer, hand watering is just too time consuming.
The second thing on my list is to streamline my gardens by culling underperformers and getting as many potted plants into the ground as possible.
Lastly, I'm going to have to come up with some sort of bribery (I'm thinking pies made out of homegrown fruit) to get my brother, cousins, and other friends and relatives to come help me spread a few truckloads of mulch.
With those tasks done I'm hopeful that next year will be both easier on me, and more attractive and productive in the gardens.
Anybody else facing the results of summer and thinking they need to make some changes? What kinds of things do you want to, need to, or feel like doing to make next year even better?
