Somerset County Master Gardener November 2012 Newsletter

Really, it’s November already? The older I get, each year seems to fly by faster than the previous one. I have just finished putting my garden to bed and am already starting to receive online garden catalogs for 2013. No wonder things seem to be moving along faster than we would like. I hope this newsletter finds you well and looking forward to spending time with friends and family as the holiday season approaches.

Thank you!

To Mark Whitney, who worked on cleaning up the raised beds here at the University of Maine Cooperative Extension office in Skowhegan. Also thank you to Sheryl Ruman and Cheryl Perkins for cleaning up the flagpole bed. The raised beds are ready for the 2013 gardening season and the flagpole bed looks the best it has since spring and is ready for an upgrade in the spring of 2013.
