In a climate suitable for three-season gardening, North Carolina is a great place for gardeners. For those who truly love gardening, I guess you could say it’s utopia. Well, I shouldn’t get carried away, as this utopia includes problems with soil, weather that can change from hour to hour, and insects like none I’ve seen before in gardening. Despite all this, the arrival of fall gives us a break from the headaches of summer and is a great time to reclaim your yard.
