After a weekend in bed with the flu, I'm now emerging from The Great British Baking Show and Gilmore Girls to confront fall cleanup on the farm.
Unlike the anxious bakers in The Great British Baking Show, I get to dig dahlias at my own pace. The goal is to get them out of the ground by Thanksgiving, which is generally a good "end" date for all fall cleanup tasks.
Other than dahlia digging, there's peony planting, spreading cover crop, getting the tunnels ready for ranunculus and anemones, and a little harvesting here and there.
We are having a peony planting party this Sunday from 9:30 to 11:30 am. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to join! We will have coffee, and volunteers will take succulents home!
I wish you all a British biscuit and a florentine.
