September Gardening - Top Ten Growing Tips
Gardening Tip # 1: Freeze fresh herbs in water in ice cube trays.
Pop out the frozen cubes, and put them onto a labeled freezer bag.
Gardening Tip #2: If it's September, then the first visit from Jack
Frost is not that far away. Be prepared for a quick "cover-up".
Gardening Tip #3: If your pumpkins are still green. With a little
help, they can still ripen in time.
Gardening Tip #4: As you clean up your garden, it is a great idea
to check the soil pH, and make corrections, if needed..
Gardening Tip #5: Harvesting seeds for planting next year, can save
you money. The seeds need to be mature, properly dried, and properly stored.
Gardening Tip #6: Got 30 to 35 days until the first frost? Try this
fast growing garden veggie.
Gardening Tip #7: Plant your Fall bulbs too deep, and they will struggle
their way to the sunlight. Plant them too shallow, and they can be killed
in frozen ground. As
a rule of thumb.......
Gardening Tip #8: It's easy to tell when your sunflower seeds are
ready to harvest..... the birds begin to take them on you.
Gardening Tip #9: Enzymes in vegetables cause the maturation process.
These enzymes must be killed, by blanching prior to freezing. Each vegetable
has a different blanching time.
Gardening Tip #10: Herbs can be stored frozen, or dried. Herbs must
be completely dry before storing.
