Something tells me I just planted 200 pieces of squirrel food in my yard
I love working in the yard this time of year. I don't know if it is the smells in the air, the cool weather or just the dark look of all of the dried plants. Unfortunately, I have been preoccupied with work on the inside so I haven't done my ritual fall "plant moving". Most of the plants have died and gone to seed but the pansies that I put in about a month ago give a nice splash of color to the garden.
I purchased a bunch of bulbs last month. I used to live on a brick-paved street near the University in Buffalo where most of the yards were covered with crocuses in the spring. It was always a dramatic sight and I always thought it would be a cool thing to try and do the same thing at my home some day. I about 150 crocus and squill bulbs scattered around the lawn this morning. We'll see if we have any success with anything growing come spring.
I also put in about 40 cloves of garlic in the garden. It never seems like we plant enough but unless I was going to give the garden completely over to garlic, which isn't the worst idea in the world, I will have to make due with the limited number of heads we get each year.
