Video Summary

The crops are in and it's nearly time to put those gardens to bed. But first let's celebrate the fall harvest with a look at what thrived and what barely survived this past growing season. With historic weather conditions across the northland, some garden favorites might not have done as well as expected. We'll have plenty of success stories to share, along with tips and solutions for any garden dilemmas you may have encountered. We'll take you on a tour of the region's most lush flower gardens, share the secret to growing scrumptious sweet corn, and even visit a corn maze. Let us help you get those beds ready for a long winter slumber.
