Re: Fall cleanup

Could you send me a copy of that list? I would love to put together something like that for our Master Gardeners. We are just getting ready to start a new class tomorrow night.

I agree...I always put in a fall garden of leaf lettuce, spinach, and
cabbage family but I have to purchase my seeds in the spring...no one
offers any in the fall and many of the stores put away everything they have

I put together a November gardening list for the Master Gardeners in Blount
County. Instead of putting it in the newsletter, they decided to use it as
a hand out for a public program this week. In the list, I mentioned a fall
garden and what could be planted. I'm hoping that we can educate the
public that fall is the best time to plant perennials and a good time to
put in a veggie garden. We may have to start providing seeds in future
years...may be a good idea for a fall program. Hmmm.

It must be contagious. We were out whacking out a bunch of summer's
over-growth today, getting ready for some fall planting of tomatoes,
peppers, and other stuff. Planting schedules for zone 10 take some
getting used to. I'm still programmed to think "spring," but in truth,
fall-winter is our best season for many things, including vegetables.

I'm not the only one in this climactic disconnect. So are the
decision-makers at the box stores. If you want to find any selection of
bedding plants for tomatoes or peppers, you have to find a local
nursery that bothers to grow its own. Or hang out at the local farmers'
market where many of the vendors grow a few bedding plants as well as
the usual collards and sweets.
