The growing season is short in the mountains.

In the spring, I will dutifully cover the new seedlings or starters when there is any chance of a damaging frost.  There is a whole growing season to look forward to.

However, in the fall, I’m somewhat hesitant.  I know at some point soon, these plants are going to die no matter what.  Then it becomes a question of whether to give them another few days of life, or just throwing in the towel to the inevitable.

  1. I am just starting to clear for the winter. I do use leaves to bank around a few plants especially any new rose bushes. Other than that I leave them alone.

    We are expecting to have an unusually cold and snowy winter….not the norm here though it has been happening with more frequency lately.

    Hope the snow holds off with you for a bit yet.
