1 Fall Vegetable Harvesting on Tue 9 Sep - 18:03

The vegetable garden is likely to require daily harvesting now.


Cucumbers, squash, tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers should be picked as soon as the fruit are ready. This not only captures the best flavor, but also makes way for new fruit.

The maximum flavor for herbs to be dried is obtained by cutting them just before their flowers open.

Make sure that potatoes are not escaping into the sunlight. Hill or mulch them if they are.

Trenches of new asparagus beds should receive their final filling in this month.

Remove dead pea vines, bolted lettuce, and other plants that have gone by and add them to the compost pile. If they show signs of disease, however, burn them.
