Gardening Series, Part 22
Your Fall and Winter Garden

Update: September 2021

The Gardening Series



Putting the garden to bed, or starting anew.

"By early fall, the Perelandra garden begins to recover from the hot, dry summer days and it takes on a breathtaking beauty. The flowers especially appreciate the shorter days and softer sun. Everything has a sense of completion — not that intensity we feel throughout the height of the growing season. It reminds me of an older person who has lived well and is now moving through the later years with an air of wisdom and calm, knowing that there are many things in life one need not get in a huge fluff about."

Next summer's garden actually begins with putting this year's garden to bed. What you do for your garden now and through this season will lay the foundation for the coming year.
