Gardening Season 2014

Just wanted to check how everyone did this season.  We are just wrapping up our 7 display gardens.  The weather this fall has been very mild and has made the clean up a bit easier.  We had a good year in our Plant a Row garden.  We have many wonderful volunteers and students that come and learn about the joys of gardening.  Planning to plant a few amaryllis and paperwhites next week in the greenhouse and get ready for the next season.
