The summer of 2015 was a splendid growing season. There was a wonderful balance of rain and sunshine and very little extreme heat or cold. By fall the gardens were especially beautiful decked out in their blazing hues of red and gold. The marigold which had been going strong since late July, continued to offer their color to the beds. I never regret the time and care it takes to plant those seedlings in March, and intend to plant even more this coming spring. My trip to Clark Farm once again gave me all the fall decor I needed to make the transition from summer flowers to cornstalks and pumpkins.
