Jack Frost stopped by, but where is the Garden Fairy?

I find that this time of year I wish the Garden Fairy would just show up and put my garden to bed for the winter. Once Jack Frost stomps through the garden, it just loses some of the excitment plus it just isn't as pleasant to hang around....
The same thing can happen at our Community and Demonstration Gardens - so the question I pose to everyone out there working in community-type gardens is how does one sustain the energy and excitement as the garden season lingers on.....


  1. Lots of fun to work in the garden when you can pick lots of great produce to bring to the community needy but the clean up has few rewards. Very hard to keep up the energy and enthusiasm.
    Hope a few of you have some suggestions.
