As we enter the second full week of September, we wanted to highlight some of the exciting events happening over this month and into the Fall Season. As the hazy, lazy days of Summer seem to have now passed, we’ve begun to prepare for the Fall and approaching Holiday Season.
Our improvements to the exterior landscape continue into the Fall with new plantings of shrubs, spring bulbs, ornamental grasses and even cover crops for vegetable sites. We also will have a new chicken coop in the rear yard where the kids will love to feed the hens. We look forward to them giving our garden a boost, and keeping it bug free!
