Bump.

Well, on Sept 30, I posted what to plant in September and no one caught it!   Embarassed  I deleted it.  This list of veggies makes a little more sense on what to plant in October! Smile

I found this article while browsing tonight:

Thank you for the reminder, I forgot the Bok Choy and cabbage.  I will carefully and gingerly (with my bad back at the moment) go plant some this afternoon  Very Happy

Finally got the 3 types of kale, Swiss chard, cabbages and snow peas planted today. I love having grids and making it so easy to plant! I have to get the tulle over the TTs before we head out to keep the white butterfly off the greens.

We are fortunate to be able to grow something year around. Hopefully your fall starts and garlic are planted or will be planted shortly. Consider bridal tulle or similar netting to keep the white butterfly off the brassicas/cabbage family plants. The leaves have not changed but the next 10 days will be cool or delightful for working outside. Lay compost and wood chips in the flower beds, deadhead late blooming roses, set out winter snap dragons and pansies for winter color. Clean and store equipment. Shop for end of season garden sales. Update your notes on successes and failures in the summer garden and what changes you will make next year.
