Wow, where did the summer go! So many interesting happenings this season. The vegetable gardens took a while to get into full swing, the perennials are just lovely, and we are headed into my favorite season, Fall. TWIG's Garden Tour was a lot of fun and we had a beautiful day. Thank you to Cinda and Jordan, Diane and Tom, Pat and Bill, Sue and Anne, Sue and Bill, and Trisha and Pete for opening up their gardens for the tour. I appreciate all the effort and hard work to make it possible. Bittersweet - I would like to thank David Hoekstra for all his hard work for the past two years. He has taken a full time position and I am very happy for him. Good Luck David! Also, Sam Perron, my right hand man has written an article below, introducing himself. I appreciate everything Sam has done this year for TWIG. He really is an asset. Also, we have hired a weeder, whom we are absolutely in love with. Karin Bolton, who is also a professional photographer has joined us part time. She came at a good time, overloaded with weeds! Welcome. As we wind down the season, we will honor any quotes we have done in 2015. Think about what didn't get done this year. We are also scheduling for garden preparation for the winter, usually the last two weeks in October. Getting your plants ready for winter is important for many reasons. If you need us, book it now. As I travel back and forth to Maine, running two businesses this year, I find each garden doing different things. Noticing so many gardens with a functioning soil, a diverse plant palette, good insects and bad, I know that nature is in balance for most of my clients. We don't need to rely on products and conventional methods to have healthy beautiful gardens. We like to plant yarrow to add calcium to your soil, or to divert aphids by attracting beneficial insects, or break to down your compost that much faster. Capturing rain from the roof, planting a rain garden to keep our ground water safe for drinking, both being important methods of environmental friendly gardens that TWIG would love to incorporate more of. Most of all, we try very hard to be kind to our environment and in turn we know the will be kind to us.
