Even though the gardening season is coming to an end; in reflection of this Thanks Giving season, there are plenty of things a gardener should be grateful for this time of year.
|1. Critters and beneficial insects that help break down litter and organic matter for great compost come spring.
|2. Leafy matter, filled with nutrient rich materials - receiving it for FREE! With a little effort, we can reclaim it for beneficial use in the garden!
|3. Late season flowering. Reminds me of abundant life - even in harsh conditions!
|4. Fruit of Harvest: Many colours, textures, foods for us and wildlife - not to mention winter interest.
|5. Colourful Fall Foliage. Just when you think the plant has given its all... A display of fall colour finishes up the growing season with a spectacular show.
