We also asked Wayne Trail, whose amazing garden was featured in the Sept 2011 issue of Gardens East, to join us. He is a firecracker of personality and between the three of us, we had a blast! As you can see in the top photo (at the side of the table), I did a bit of book promo too, as many nurseries and garden centres will be offering my book in the spring. I even had an advance copy to display and I was thrilled at the kind comments of those who took a peek.

We actually ended up with a thick blanket of snow - the 35 cm that was predicted - and the garden is now covered with a shimmering blanket. Yet, temperatures are heading up into the double digits by tomorrow, so I can't think this snow will hang around very long. I don't think I'll even bother shoveling the cold frames since the snow should melt in the next day or two and I know the insulating layer of snow won't hurt the cold season veggies in the structures.
Besides the early blast of winter, I had another nice surprise this week.. My seminar at the ACORN Conference on November 11th made the top 10 list of great things at the conference - Top Ten List What a nice treat!
