This time of the year, mid November thru Christmas, may be the Harper Boys favorite. You have great weather, the fall garden season is going strong, and some of the signs of Christmas gardening are showing up! You should and can still be planting fall/winter color. Many of you have waited for cooler weather, smart, and it’s finally here. Winter veggies go on and on. You can replant and have 2nd and 3rd crops of lettuce, chard, onions, beets, ……This is still about the best time of year for Trees, Shrubs, and vines to be planted and get established before hot weather arrives!
