October marks the true start of autumn and much work for the gardener! We are now racing against time to complete our chores before that first strong frost. It has been drier than usual over the past 2 months, so remember to irrigate new plantings. Also, remember to take a moment and make some notes about your garden. Among other details, we should be taking note of what annuals are still looking respectable, which late season vegetables lived up to expectations, and perhaps what woody plants or perennials should be added to enhance the autumn garden for next year!
