"Do not eat garlic or onions; for their smell will reveal that you are a peasant.” Cervantes in Don Quixote. Unless you side with Don Quixote, don't forget to plant garlic before you put your garden to bed for the winter!

I like being a worm farmer. Like my fondness for rabbit poop, I take great pride in the rich nutrients they produce for my garden. These are natural talents we humans can't begin to duplicate. Our poop just isn't that great.

Many gardeners started their broccoli seeds several weeks ago. However, I was slow on the up-take this year and didn't start any seeds myself. I was so slow, in fact, that instead of getting to carefully choose my broccoli variety, I had had to pick up whatever was available at the nursery. Works for me; beggars can't be choosers.

There are many, many lettuces to choose from, way beyond what you can buy at the grocery. And here's good news: the "exotic" varieties are way easier to grow, and way more nutritious and colorful, than that old standby, iceberg.

Carrots are an excellent source of beta-carotene (converted to vitamin A in the body), Vitamins K with traces of C, B, and E. They’re a good source for potassium and manganese, as well. Whose body couldn't use that nutrition for the winter?

This is the beginning of the revamping and reorganizing season. It doesn't feel as fun as the active growing season, but it's a time for stepping back and taking stock. Here's some of the things I have on my list for the month of November.

While lettuces are predominately a cool-weather crop, there are summer varieties available that don't disappoint. They're so easy to plant, grow, and harvest that I try to have lettuces in my garden every season.
