Prep

  • Select spots where you want fruit trees, grapes, or berries to plant in January; for now, prep with compost

  • Get that row cover ready! Do not protect plants with plastic!

 

Tips

  • Cut basil to freeze in oil in ice cube trays to use this winter in soups and stews

  • Collect seeds from summer annuals to dry and store indoors until next spring

  • Take cuttings of tender annuals to propagate in warmth to plant next spring

  • Rake leaves into beds to mulch over winter and return nutrients to the soil

  • Mow leaves on grass (if not raking to beds or compost) to break them down

  • Collect leaves from neighbors to add to compost pile!

  • Deeply water new plants; keep new seedlings moist but not drenched
