TIP 4: Clean up the vegetable garden. Rip out beans and any other plants that have stopped producing. Mulch the unused areas of the garden to prevent weeds from germinating and growing. Don’t compost any plants that had disease problems. Plant spinach, garlic and other winter crops now.
TIP 5: Sow fescue seed by mid-October. If you want more fescue, now is the time to over seed your fescue lawn. If your lawn is very compacted and you have a great deal of trouble growing grass try renting an aerator and making multiple passes to loosen your soil before seeding.
