Burdock is out here helping me with fall garden chores.
Fall Garden Chores:
✔️harvest the last of the peppers for hot sauce preparation ✔️replace warm season crops with cool season veggies ✔️plant cover crops
✔️remove mulch (slug and snail habitat) from vegetable garden ✔️fertilize between rain storms
✔️aerate and over-seed lawn
✔️prune to remove dead limbs and branches
🔜put up the hoop house
Not to brag, but check out my whopping Strawberry popcorn harvest...yup, that’s the whole harvest out of an 4’x6’ plot. The other ears were so minuscule, it didn’t seem right to the include them. I’ve been “oohing” and “ahhing” over the Strawberry popcorn pics I’ve seen from fellow growers, but alas, mine was bunk. But corn usually is for me. I want to grow it, it just doesn’t want to grow. And shame, because I’ve been drooling over @botanical_interests “GlassGem”...it is beyond beautiful and I now covet it😍 I know I should dedicate more room to them, and I practice the Three Sisters companion planting method, but can any corn gods and goddesses out there offer any good growing advice🌽🙏😊
