Winter is slow to come to us in ETN. Last week, we still had plants
trying to bloosom again. This week we had a hard frost so more and more
is going into dormancy. Snow is definitely forecast for the Smoky
Mountains, an hour away. We may get some flurries. So, this morning I
got out the garlic bulbs and got them in a raised bed: six of Kettle
River Giant; three of Chilean Silver; and three of Inchelium Red. All of
the bulbs had lots of cloves so I filled up one of my five raised veggie
beds. All my decidious holly look great, as well as the oak-leaf
hydrangae, red twig dogwood, and Natchez crepe myrtle. Since we don't
get much snow, I have tried to put some color interest in my gardens.

Thanks for the dehydrator info. I may try to work up a batch of figs next year.
