- I counted my butternut squash too soon. I found 2 more today! They are not ripe yet, hanging outside my fence, hidden in the weeds.
- I ordered garlic for planting a few days ago. Decided I did not have enough this year to use for planting as well as eating. I'll eat my whole crop. I ordered 1 lb from Territorial Seed Co (2 varieties - their special combo of a white soft neck and a purple hard neck) - about 60 cloves total for planting later this fall.
- Its time to consider your fall cover crops and order seed now. Still early enough to plant clovers and legumes. As it gets later, go for just rye. I wish I'd remembered this and ordered it with my garlic. I might have saved on shipping charges.
