Have you planted your fall garden yet?
When planting for fall, it’s best to pick a spot that will receive as much sun as possible, since fall brings not only cooler temperatures but shorter days. You should also be prepared to protect the plants at the onset of the first frost. This means keeping an ear tuned to weather reports and being ready to spread mulch or some sort of cover to protect the plants.
I love canning, and it is so very satisfying to go out in the garden in September and harvest vegetables to put up for the winter. I'll be sharing some canning tips and recipes in a few weeks, and would love to get some ideas from other readers too!
