A fall application of 1-2 inches of compost or manure will help refresh your soil for next season.
Check your soil PH. The ideal range is between 6.3 and 6.9 for vegetables. Too low? Add lime.
It is time to turn off your watering system, disassemble hoses, put away sprinklers and put foam hats on your faucets.
Dry or freeze herb and can or freeze any remaining crops. My kitchen is full of platters of green tomatoes awaiting green tomato chutney and salsa verde.
Check out the link Pat Smith, aka 'The Garlic Lady' shared last month, seattletimes.com/pacific-nw-magazine, for a planting tutorial.
Great for decorating and eating!
SWGC will again participate in the Langley Holiday Parade on Saturday December 1 at 1 PM. We will be filling seed packets at the November meeting to hand out at the parade. Jeana Noel will need help decorating her truck. Judy La Course and Jeana are coordinating. Plan on walking or riding, invite a friend and be ready for some holiday fun!
