General Garden duties

Today's Activities:  It's a leaf day, so a great time to harvest the various basils and get them ready for winter storage.

Bed 6:  stake up tomatoes for their last week in the bed.  Transplant the Stinging Nettle into a pot.

Up the hill:  deadhead spent flowers, take out senescent plants.  Harvest tomatoes, mustard greens, romaine, other greens as needed.  Weed.  Probably take out all the peppers and low/non-producing summer veggies.  Harvest pumpkins and butternut squash.  Stake out and double dig realigned beds and sow cover crop.  Create open compost bin.  (Bring kitchen scraps for compost if you're not already composting at home.) Move manure to soon-to-be-new plot.

What to bring:  gloves, pick ax, shovel, spading fork, snipper/scissors if you have them.

    For the next few Saturdays I will be MIA due to commitments I made to volunteer for the Presidential campaign and my Mothers 85th birthday. However, if there are tasks that need to be done on a Friday or Sunday during this period, I could probably pitch in.

      Hi, Rene! We do have activities that can be done on Friday or Saturday - I've posted them on Saturday's meeting. We may also be able to meet you there either day, Sunday being the most likely.
