Our garden has had a tough year. Between heavy spring rains, Tropical Storm Irene, powdery mildew, and our local groundhog, keeping the garden going has been a challenge (though we have been rewarded with a great deal of cucumbers). Here in East Middlebury, we narrowly avoided a frost in late September, but the end of the growing season is very close. The first hard freeze of the year is coming to Addison County.
