As we dry our last tomatoes, check our pumpkins for ripeness, and
cover our winter spinach, comes the time to start preparing and
planning for the coming year. As your garden rests, the hardworking
worms break down your compost and build the soil. Come spring, when
it’s too wet to dig, your beds will be ready to plant.
Learn expert techniques for soil care, tailored to our Pacific
Northwest maritime climate.
We will also cover:
-tools and tool care
-garden ergonomics to save your body
-garden design: making the most of your garden site
and other tips for fall garden management
