--------------------- I'm from a family of sisters in Minnesota, and thanks to my parents, I pretty much think I can do anything (but will certainly accept help!) I'm in my 40's. I've lived in Texas a long time, and I just bought my house in May 2009. I still can't believe it's mine!
Today is the solstice (hard to believe as it is 80 degress here in Dallas today!) and it seems appropriate that day before yesterday I put my garden boxes to bed for the winter. The soil can rest, and be ready for Spring. I tucked in my remaining plants with a nice layer of mulched leaves and a layer of straw on top. All snuggled in for the winter.
