Garden Goals: November

The days are getting shorter and the leaves are falling from the trees.  Normally I would be done with the garden after the first frost, but this year I'm trying to extend my season.  So, here's November's gardening goals:

  • Clean up garden: I need to pull the eggplants and clean up the herb garden.
  • Add manure to beds as they are cleaned up.
  • Mulch: rake up leaves, get Jeff to mow them and add to beds
  • Plant the winter garden: This is my experimental garden because I have no clue if seeds are going to germinate this late in the year, much less grow and mature.  I guess I will find out!
  • Cover beds: since I ended up getting much more row cover than I originally needed, I'm going to make a cold frame for the broccoli.  The broccoli seem to be taking their time and I don't know if they are going to make it before it gets too cold.  I may make another frame for one of the fall beds too.
  • Harvest and eat fall veggies!
Well, I guess this means I should get moving and get off the couch.  Happy November gardening!

  1. I've been reading "The Winter Harvest Handbook" by Eliot Coleman. It has a ton of info on 12 month gardening. May be a help on your venture... You have quite a list there, good luck!
