Harvest and Thanksgiving - Americans really enjoy November and
Thanksgiving. For just a moment we slow down. We turn to indoor activities.
Cooking and baking returns to our vocabulary. Many of the recipes we use
this month focuses upon apples, pumpkins, and other foods that came out of
our gardens. Most of all, we give thanks to God for the many blessings he
has bestowed upon us and our gardens.
All of us at The Gardener's Network, wish you a very happy, and blessed
After 20 years, Pumpkin Nook's store will be closing at the end of November.
We will be moving on to retirement. This will allow much more time for pumpkin
growing, and gardening in general.
We are only closing the store. Pumpkin Nook will continue as a content site.
With more time on my hands, I will be adding even more content and produce
frequent posts on my Garden
We'd like to thank our many loyal customers who made our store a great success,
and a pleasure to operate!

good house plants, you can use them in the kitchen.winter long.
Composting .... Don't throw out those dead plants...... compost them.
Collect your garden waste, along the weeds and other plant matter. Turn
it into rich garden soil for next season. The best gardens are grown by gardeners
who make their own compost.
