October Garden To-Do List

Putting the Garden to Bed
By Duane V Ackerman
It’s autumn already! It seems like summer just flew past. Maybe it’s time to give some thought about putting the garden to bed. Do you remember all those brilliant ideas you had earlier this spring and summer? Well, now is the time to retrieve them from the corners of your brain and give them greater consideration. Here are a few memory joggers which may help.
General cleanup: Do essential housekeeping chores first. Get rid of old vines, dead plants and lingering weeds. The alternative is waiting until spring and trying to incorporate your brand new, brilliant ideas with the old hangers-on.
Soil test: If your garden soil hasn’t been tested within the last 5 years, now is a good time to take a sample to the Missouri Extension Office (636-456-3444) for an evaluation.
Unused seeds: Take a close look at the seeds you didn’t use this year. This includes those that you didn’t use last year or the year before that either. If in doubt, pitch it out! They just clutter up your brain and available workspace.
Lawn maintenance: The lawn is part of your overall gardening effort, too. Now is an ideal time to have it aerated and fertilized to promote overwinter root growth.
Next year’s plan: This is an ideal time to evaluate this year’s plan and make a rough sketch of what you want to accomplish down the road. Include both your successes and failures. Maximize your pluses and minimize your minuses. You will have plenty of time to revise this outline during the winter months ahead, so don’t aim for perfection on your first try.
Get help: If you already know everything, just skip this item. But if you have lingering questions about concepts, procedures or anything else - get help! Your local Master Gardener group is a good place to start.
