Fall is a time of fresh starts, a chance to celebrate the changing of the seasons before the holidays arrive. It's also a decorating opportunity to make your home a cozier and more inviting place to nest within while the temperatures begin to drop. Autumn decor can range from traditional to trendy, and should always be adapted to your own taste, lifestyle, and environment.
Updating your home for the new season is more than just a fun thing to do — it could actually benefit your mental health, too. Have you ever just looked at a display of pumpkins, gourds and Halloween lights at a neighbor’s house (or even in your own home) and felt instantly happier? Well, there’s a scientific explanation for that.
Each year, we create an Autumnal Wonderland full of one-of-a-kind displays and locally-grown pumpkins of every shape and size. Whether you need a small pumpkin that weighs less than a pound or a large pumpkin, we’ve got the perfect pumpkin for you. You’ll find all shapes, sizes and colors of pumpkins and gourds as well as corn stalks, hay bales and autumn garden decorations.
When it comes to corn, fresh is best, so buying local at the farmer’s market is key in finding the best tasting corn on the cob. You just can’t get that same sensation from produce that’s been picked, boxed, and transported to sit for days in displays at large commercial stores. To make the best of summer’s sweet corn while at its peak, here are Donna’s suggestions and tips for serving one of the most delicious treats of the season.

A Father's Day Tribute by Donna Dorsey for her beloved father, Richard Osborne, our founder.

When weather forecasters issue a frost advisory in late spring and early fall, that’s your heads-up to protect annuals and other vulnerable plants. You might think temperatures have to get to the freezing point (32˚F), but actually, a frost can occur between 36˚F and 32˚F.

Get ahead on your gardening by starting ornamental and flower seeds indoors and producing your own transplants. With a little planning, a few supplies and tools, plus some know-how, you’ll be on your way to seed starting success. Plant these flower seeds indoors, under lights, six to eight weeks before transplanting into the garden.
Starting seeds indoors has many benefits, including an earlier harvest. While some crops can be direct seeded, you can start them indoors and move up the harvest date. Another perk of starting seeds indoors is the ability to grow long season crops in short season climates.
Focus on frost hardy annuals. Some of these annuals that can withstand 20 degrees or so, including pansies, snapdragons, dianthus, alyssum, dusty miller and osteospermum. Keep in mind that flowers may be a bit ragged after such cold but the plants should make it through ok. Annuals able to tolerate a light frost include varieties of petunia, nicotiana, calendula, Victoria sage, and verbena canadensis.
