It’s Wine Trip Season

See the story on Page 6 Illinois Wine Trips .......... Pages 6 & 8

We are all looking forward to some cooler weather after this sweltering summer heat. Fall will be here before we know it. It will be time to prepare our lawns and landscapes for the winter months. It is also a good time to plan for spring flower gardens next year by planting bulbs this fall. Springflowering bulbs such as daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are generally planted in the fall. Arrange to get these bulbs soon and remember you can store them in the refrigerator for six to eight weeks before planting. It is also time to get all of the fruits and vegetables from our gardens put away. Remember that lots of vegetables can be blanched and frozen so that they can be enjoyed all winter long. You can also make tomato juice, sauce, salsa and even tomato jam. These can all be canned or frozen as well.
