Re: strange gardening year


> Look for an early winter I think.

That sort of depends - earlier than what?  Earlier than usual perhaps, but
not earlier than last fall.  I hated doing it, but I had to turn my heat on
in mid September last year.  Of course autumn, by definition, has its
fluctuations, but last year it started early, the fluctuations were quick
and we were into winter so fast and cold that I didn't get an opportunity to
steal many leaves.  And then the winter lasted longer into spring, too.  I
generally don't mind winter - it comes and goes and we move on, but last
year was a bear.  So far nothing seems early here.
