Happy Holidays!!

Happy Holidays everyone! Some of you have snow this Christmas but not here in Santa Fe. We are bone dry here this year and looking for some moisture. So I thought you could enjoy the snow pattern on the blog. Be sure to water your trees and perennial plants soon before it gets bitter cold again. We tend to forget to water them and not doing so really stresses them.

I’m embarrassed to say I’m not even done with cleaning out my big garden yet. Arrgh! I did pull all the tomato and other veggie plants out of the ground and the cages as well before the ground freezes. They are laying all over the place in the garden. At least they won’t be frozen in the ground. So I’ve started cleaning out the cages of tomato vines, storing the cages and loading up the trailer to go to the dump. I put all tomato plant debris and squash debris in the trailer because they are so prone to diseases and I don’t want to put diseased plants in my composting piles. All healthy plants do however go into the compost pile. Hope to have it done in the next 2 weeks.

Mostly I’ve read some gardening books this winter-nice time to catch up on reading. We should all enjoy our time off in the garden and use it to rejuice us so we are ready to garden by spring. Hope you have a fantastic holiday whatever you celebrate!
