Just stumbled across the website of The Renegade Gardener, the self-proclaimed “lone voice of horticultural reason for USDA Zones 2 through 4.” He’s opinionated (check out the ten tenets of renegade gardening), funny (read his bio), and informative (study up on his garden myths). I would like to think that this blog is another voice of reason for the cold climate gardener, but his site is a definite must-read.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
