What Should We Do in the Garden?

Choose the mild weather during this period to plant or transplant:  beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, collards, lettuce, mustard, onions, radishes, spinach and turnips.  Plant your second planting of fall crops such as collards, turnips, cabbage, mustard, and kale.

Refurbish mulch to control weeds, and start adding leaves and other materials to the compost pile.  Store your manure under cover to prevent leaching of nutrients.

Water deeply and thoroughly to prevent drought stress. Pay special attention to new transplants.

Harvest mature green peppers and tomatoes before frost gets them.

Harvest herbs and dry them in a cool, dry place.

And, most importantly, enjoy the cooler weather and enjoy your garden.

Happy Gardening!gardenchores
