Surprise!  Winter had made an early appearance this year in Ohio!  It feels like Winter and from time to time, it has been looking like Winter.  This weather has created some challenges for us as we try our best to finish up leaf clean ups.  We have found ourselves bouncing between cleaning up leaves and putting down salt.  Even with the challenges, we are pushing forward.  Rest assured that we are a few days away from finishing leaf clean ups and our final round of fertilizer. 

Our plow routes have been finalized, our salt storage area has been expanded, and we have received a few loads of salt.  Before you know it, Christmas will be here and we’ll say goodbye to 2018! 

We have started our planning for the 2019 home show season.  We will once again have one of the featured gardens at the Great Big Home & Garden Show at the IX Center.  If you have never been up to the show, it is definitely worth the drive.  It’s a great sample of Spring in the middle of Winter.  It looks and smells like Spring.  Plants and flowers are blooming and you can walk through many different gardens to gather ideas for your yard.  This year’s theme is Fairy Tales! Of course, we chose Brothers Grimm for our garden.  If you want to know how we include that in a garden, you will have to come see for yourself.  We hope to see you there!
