My garden is now asleep for the winter. A few of the plants I've cut down, but most I haven't. I'm hoping the old plant gives some protection in case of a hard winter. We just had our first real snow here that can be measured. The arrival is about a week earlier than normal.
I've heard due to the weather trends this year, we will have a lot of rain and snow until at least January and it will be unseasonably cold. I can't say it has been that cold yet.
