At some point in September, we’re going to have a frost or freeze. That marks the end of most annual flowers and the vegetable garden. As we move into the fall, the days won’t be too hot and the nights will be cool. It’s time to clean up the frozen plants and prepare for winter and next spring’s growing season.
