Happy Halloween from Groundhog Hill!

The Garden has been bush-hogged courtesy of my brother-in-law, John. Ready for the remaining walnuts to fall to the ground, for the deer to pick through what’s left to eat (some mint, cinnamon basil….sorry, deer!).

Bring on November and some beautiful Autumnal days filled with golden sunshine, leaf-raking and mugs of hot chocolate. Forecast for December (per the wooly worms) is early Snow and lots of Wintry Weather!

Groundhog Hill is ready.

More later.

About GroundHog Hill

Splitting my time between my home in Santa Monica, California, and my hometown of Hodgenville, Kentucky. Spending the summer with my 93-year-young father and writing about our adventures in Summer Gardening for the local newspaper, The La Rue County Herald News. This weekly column is Notes From Groundhog Hill. Groundhog Hill is the name and location of my half-acre flower and vegetable garden which is part of my family farm, Gypsy Acres. My paternal grandfather, Paul E. Enlow, named the hill as such because it was "groundhog heaven." Shawnee Indians used to camp there centuries ago and many arrowheads have been found there while wading in the nearby Main Fork of Nolynn Creek.
