Putting Your Vegetable Garden to Bed

Fall is the time of year for two of our favorite garden activities-harvest and reflection. Without the harvest, we can’t reap the rewards of a summer well spent. And without reflection, we’ll never learn from our mistakes and successes.

Tips on How to Winterize Your Pond

The night temperatures are starting to cool and the leaves have started to color. And though the last few days still felt like summer, winter is definitely on its way. So now is the time to get your ponds and water features ready for the frosty temperatures to come.

Protect Your Outdoor Furniture This Fall & Winter

The maple leaves are just beginning to color and before we know it, the snow will be falling. So now is the perfect time to think about protecting your casual outdoor furniture from any winter polar vortices.

Who Doesn’t Love These Windy & Crisp Fall Days

October is such a transitional time, a month that seems to teeter on the edge of a climatic cliff. Colors change as deep green foliage morphs into mellow butter yellow or fiery scarlet. Sounds change as migratory birds mass on the telephone wires to chat and plan travel routes. Who doesn’t love these windy, slightly crisp, fall days when you can walk through the woods and watch leaves dance and listen to acorns beat out a rhythm as they fall to the ground.

Late Summer Garden Maintenance

For many gardeners, Labor Day marks the end of summer and the beginning of the autumn lawn care season. Cooler temperatures and more regular rainfall make this an excellent time to start a new lawn or repair an existing one.

Common Questions About Fall Bulbs

Do you have questions when it comes to fall bulbs? What are they, and how and when do I plant them are things that gardeners ask. Planting bulbs is simple and rewarding, especially when the shoots emerge after a long winter.

Plant Fall for Fall Leaves Before the Leaves Fall

Plant for the march of color and watch the leaves transform to amazing shades of scarlet, gold and orange.

Planting Fall Bulbs

Adding spring flowering bulbs to your garden borders is simple and rewarding, especially when those new crocus shoots emerge after a long Wisconsin winter.

Cucumber and Melon Salad with Chile and Honey

The shaved cucumber and melon will release some liquid and lose a bit of crunch after they’re dressed, so toss everything together just before serving.
