Those of you in the Rochester, NY area should check out Upstate Gardeners’ Journal, if you’re not already familiar with it. Now, Rochester is not what I would consider a cold climate; they’ve got Lake Ontario moderating their winter temperatures. But as a resident of upstate New York myself, I heartily support a magazine that covers our diverse and beautiful region. So many people seem to think all of New York state is New York City. NOT! And if Maine can have People, Places, and Plants, which no longer covers Maine exclusively, why can’t upstate New Yorkers have a gardening magazine of their own? So I plan on doing everything I can to give this magazine a larger audience, which, hopefully, will lead to a more extensive coverage of upstate NY.
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.
