Speaking of leaves there will be plenty to collect for mulching or composting.
It was also the ideal weekend for planting garlic and flower bulbs, with soil temps getting into the 50's for most of the state.
We did get a pretty good frost across most of Iowa so if you were still getting tomatoes and wanting more I hope they were protected.
Maybe you even got a trip out to the pumpkin patch!
