Fall is just around the corner for most of us and you may find yourself wondering what you can do in your garden for the month of September? I got your back with a list of things you can do to keep your harvest coming right up till it gets really cold.
Fall is a busy time of year for everywhere no matter where you live. It’s also the time to start watching the weather for your first unexpected frost.
Here’s a list of things you can do in the garden in September in your garden.
Direct sow fall greens, lettuce, swiss chard, kale, radish, peas, and carrots. I try to pick varieties with a shorter growing season that can handle the cold when planning for my fall garden.
Pull out any sick, bug-infested, or dying plants this will give you space for your fall planting. If you have sick or bug-infested plants feed them to your pigs or chickens or burn them so it doesn’t spread to your compost piles.
Order garlic. You can plant it later in the month or in October depending on your season.
Havest remaining herbs until the first frost.
Save seeds from your favorite plants for next year’s garden. Be sure to allow them to dry completely before storing them.
