Caring for the Herbaceous Peony Garden

It’s the first day of autumn, and the season's chores are well underway here at my Bedford, New York farm.

Supporting a working farm is a lot of work. In order for it to thrive, animals and gardens need constant tender loving care. We keep a running list of all the chores that need to be done at any given time, so it always looks and functions at its best. Recently, my outdoor grounds crew cleaned up the herbaceous peony garden - removed the stakes and twine from the peony rows, weeded the footpaths, and carefully trimmed the surrounding boxwood hedges.
