Grow it and share it. Pictures, how-to's, and what for's to satisfy the gardener in everyone.   It's time to gather the last of the tomatoes, bring in the ferns, and start raking leaves to add to compost.  The first frost will be soon.  You may also want to disconnect hoses from faucets!  Ask the leaf gatherers to leave you the chopped leaves in a neat pile rather than taking them to their dumping place.  They rake easily into the mulch to enrich our clay.

Wondering what grows here in the clay soil? Where the best green houses are? When to plant what? How to make it grow?
