Tips for Gardening in November

  • Check your organic fertilizer package directions and keep those plants fed.
  • Clean up any dead vegetation to keep pests at bay. Check your leaves for signs of hungry caterpillars and remove visible pests by hand.

  • Harvest any and all veggies you can find! Crops are best enjoyed when picked in the early morning.
