If you have dead/withered plants in your beds, it's time to pull them up in preparation for winter. We encourage you to make that final trip out to the garden to set your bed(s) in order before the nasty weather bumps it down to the bottom of your priority list, right alongside sorting the single socks in your sock drawer.
We know, we know: why would you plant garlic if the future of the garden is unclear? It's a tough place to be in. But one nice saving grace about garlic is that it is very easy to transplant in its early phases, meaning there's always the option of relocating your shoots in months to come. Beyond that, garlic is one of the easiest and most reliable crops you can grow, not to mention economical (think about how expensive organic garlic is!).
It's that time of the year again––cool mornings, a break from the smoke, orange tints in the tree leaves. Lucky for us, fall is also a time of bounty and ripeness. Tomatoes, squash and corn are coming into their full colour and sweetness, and the soil is still warm enough to germinate those same cold-hardy seeds you first planted way back in the spring.
