What are you pulling, planting, preserving, plotting?
I'm attempting to spend as much time outdoors in the next few weeks, while making notes of what went well - and not so well - in the garden:
Tomatoes ended up being waterlogged and starved of calcium and potassium. I'll either break down and buy the pre-made tops for an Earthbox, or fashion something more resistant to sagging. I'll also plant them using the techniques shared by Tim:
Harvest my one delicata squash that made it to maturity...sigh...
Tending to what remains in my community garden plot: tons of Brussels sprouts - whoo!
Making bread and butter pickles and dilly beans!
Turning the compost pile and screening any finished stuff to put in my beds.
Re-seeding our crappy lawn with a drought-tolerant cover crop like rye or clover.
Potting up some of the more precious herbs and geraniums to overwinter inside, and eventually washing out pots from the container garden and storing them away for winter.
Digging up any tubers (I grew some phenomenal dinner plate Dahlias this year) to dry and overwinter.
Ordering and planting bulbs - including garlic!
Planting wildflower seeds in some of the sad areas around my yard and neighborhood (no, :) I have not asked permission).
Getting ready for apple-picking!
What about you?
