"I love a good hole-in-the-wall as much as the next person. Burger Addict, sandwiched between a biker bar and an old-school convenience store in a crusty corner off of Maple Valley Highway feels more like the punch line of a bad joke than the new “house” of a classically French- trained executive chef like Marcus Olson."

Planting bulbs in October will give them the time they need to develop roots before winter arrives.
Fall is best for planting trees and shrubs because the soil is still warm from the summer encouraging new root growth but the autumn rains mean you can let nature take over your watering chores.
It is harvest time in the vegetable garden so keep picking ripe tomatoes, cucumbers and summer squash. Share fresh produce with your local food bank if you’re lucky enough to have a bumper crop.
The big advantage of doing these chores in the fall rather than spring is that the soil is already warm and ready to encourage new root growth and after such a dry summer the slug and snail population should be less damaging to tender young transplants.
