October Gardening Tips....



From the UGA Extension Vegetable Garden page….

  • Choose the mild weather during this period to plant or transplant the following: beets, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, collards, lettuce, mustard, onions, radishes, spinach and turnips. Plant your second planting of fall crops such as collards, turnips, cabbage, mustard and kale.
  • Refurbish mulch to control weeds, and start adding leaves and other materials for the compost pile. Store your manure under cover to prevent leaching of nutrients.
  • Water deeply and thoroughly to prevent drought stress. Pay special attention to new transplants.
  • Harvest mature green peppers and tomatoes before frost gets them — it may not come until November, but be ready.
  • Harvest herbs and dry them in a cool, dry place.
