Taking Summer Stock – What Worked? What Didn’t?

I love and hate the end of the summer.

I hate that it has ended.  I love that I can spend quiet hours cleaning up, organizing and getting ready for the next garden.

And I love some of my online gardening friends for their insights, their humor and their ideas.

Check out this post from Chrystal.  Gardener extraordinaire, keeper of bee hives

Bees making honey in Chrystal's garden.

and sharer of good advice, good recipes and good humor, she gardens a bit north of me (British Columbia) and catalogs the good and the bad from her 2015 garden!

And shares some wonderful pictures in the process.

Read up and learn how Chrystal copes aphids (suggested she get some lacewings which devour lots of irritating bugs).

Find out how her tomatoes grew (like mine, they didn’t) and check out what she made with her lovely red raspberries.

Reading about her adventures helped me with my end of gardening season blues.  Isn’t it nice to know we have company in our back yards?

Happy planning for 2016!
