Fall Gardening

To help get the ball rolling for all of the activity that can take place in the fall garden, just remember (in no particular order):

Clean up debris and compost if it isn’t diseased

Organize storage sheds, garden notes and left-over seeds

Mulch beds and plants after the ground is frozen

Plant spring-flowering bulbs, evergreens and garlic (sow some leafy greens)

Overwinter cool season vegetable crops with row covers

Sharpen and Store garden tools (after they are cleaned).

Test the soil in your garden and lawn

Record your garden successes and failures for next year

Enjoy fresh produce while it lasts

Water trees and shrubs (especially evergreens) to reduce winter damage

Apply lime and fertilizer according to test results

Remove spent plant parts and compost them

Divide perennials

Save seeds from favorite plants.
