First off, we apologize for the long delay in posting updates on the happenings at Half Moon! It was a busier spring than usual with the new cabin, and the summer and early fall has flown by like a flash! Things have slowed down a bit, and we feel we can finally start posting a little more regularly now.
Fall at the resort is beautiful, and a time that our family thoroughly enjoys. Mom (Mary), myself, and our garden crew were hard at work in the gardens this past week. Every fall, we go through the gardens – making note of plants that did well, those that didn’t, and things we would like to try next season. It’s also a time that we split perennial plants that have grown too large for their current spot in the garden. Lastly, we put the gardens to bed for the winter (winterizing). The first two photos are before and after we have winterized one of the gardens. Winterizing requires cutting most of the perennial plants down, pulling the annuals, and saving any bulbs that we will take inside to replant next season. All of plants that we pull or cut are then composted – making nutrient rich compost for adding to the gardens in future years.
