Cover Story: Planning for Wine Trip Season Many wineries are located throughout the state. Many of them are conveniently clustered, allowing you to discover a variety of wines in just one trip. Whether you’re planning a romantic weekend or a fun getaway with the girls, a genuine Illinois Wine experience is never more than a few hours away.

See the story on Page 6

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. Spring-flowering 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’s Wine Trip Season

Missouri Wine Trips ... Pages 10 & 12

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. Check out the website called pickyourown.org. It has all types of tips on preserving all of your fruits and vegetables. Have fun with it!
