If you plant it, it will grow... or at least you hope so! If your grocery stores provides you with Organic Farm Grown fruits and vegetables from the USA you are lucky. Those who are not farmers but love to dig in the dirt know there are certain responsibilities in the Fall. Garden Chores for homeowners who enjoy digging in the dirt for planting flowers, trees, shrubs, and small vegetable gardens include:
- Winterize with the correct fertilizer
- Know your moles, grubs and other garden pests and treat for pest control
- Keep pulling up summer veggies to make room for fall crops
- Know your zone for early frosts and freezes
- Potted plants need to be repotted
- It's time to plant spring blooming bulbs in depths recommended
- Add compost, manure, mulch, and prune
ENJOY THE FRUITS OF YOUR LABOR
