Itís time to put your garden away for winter. Plan ahead and do it right so you can relax when the bad days come. As soon as plants quit producing, cut down stalks so they donít lead freezing water into the ground. Turn the soil and cover it with a thin layer of mulch, leaves, grass or straw, then secure the layer with chicken wire or screening held down by bricks or rocks. Also plant any bulbs you want to bloom in the spring (such as daffodils and tulips) weeks before the first hard frost. If you live in cold weather and have a live Christmas tree, youíll want to plant it outside afterward. Dig a hole for it before the ground freezes. Fill the hole with leaves and grass clippings and save dirt indoors in a bag for winter planting. Plan ahead to be ready for spring and skies of blue. And that's the On The House tip for today.
