We had our first snowfall a few days ago.
Have also been busy with greenhouse orders. All the pre-started plants had to be ordered early, so those orders were done before the end of October. The big seed order is in, and two smaller ones, Stokes and T&T will be ordered as soon as the new catalogues arrive.
Since I am making the garden smaller next year, I have to plan how to include some of everything we enjoy. I can't reduce the 5 long rows of onions, or the 4 long rows of different types of potatoes. Not likely to reduce the 26 tomato plants that I usually grow, nor the 2 doz slicing cucumber plants.
I hope our berry patch produces well next year. We have about 40 Haskap bushes, 16 saskatoon bushes, 30' of purple raspberries, 30' of black raspberries, 70' of red raspberries, lots of gooseberries (green and red), currants (red, white, black), josta-berries (cross between black currant and gooseberry) and 5 goji berries. I managed to get them all cleaned and a lot of them mulched with chopped leaves to a deep depth, which should keep down weed germination next year. Our 9 cherry bushes have also been cleaned and mulched with wood chips.
And I hate watering the plants that I am keeping over for stock plants in the basement windows, and checking them for bugs.
