September Garden To-Do List

?- Happy Herbs. When night temperatures drop below 55 degrees F, its time to dig and pot herbs to
bring indoors for winter use. Give them a good rinse and place in a sunny window.
- Tomato Tip. Mature green tomatoes can be ripened indoors. Wrap each fruit individually in
newspaper. Store in a cool place (60 degrees F) until ripe.
- Harvest Brussels Sprouts. Don't harvest Brussels sprouts until after a hard frost. This makes them
much sweeter.
- Create Cuttings. Take cuttings from impatiens, coleus and phlox to over winter for next year's
- Shrub Idea. Fall is perfect to plant balled and wrapped shrubs. Be sure to remove wire baskets
and nylon twine. Keep watered up until the ground freezes.
- An Apple A Day. Visit a local apple orchard. Pick a bushel or two to take home. Make some
apple butter and applesauce.
- Harvest Time. Harvest winter squash before a frost. Store in a cool dark location. Pick your
apples, pears, grapes and bearing raspberries, too.
- Cover Up. Keep a row cover handy to cover tomatoes and peppers in case of an early frost.
- Flower Tip. Stop fertilizing roses and stop cutting blooms. This gives the plant time to form hips
and prepare for winter.
- Shake It Up. Make sure the compost pile stays well mixed. If it's full start a new one to receive
the soon-to-be falling l
- Prepare Peonies. Divide peonies this month, be sure to replant at the same depth. Keep well
watered until the ground freezes.
