Vegetable Gardening Hints, Issue #022 - Things to do in November.
November 07, 2009


Taking the time to reflect and answer a few questions at this time of year can make your life easier next season and help in having a healthier and more productive veggie garden.

  • How did my garden grow?
  • Was I happy with what grew?
  • If not, what did not grow as well as I hoped? What went wrong?
  • What could I do differently next year to make it better?
  • What improvements does my garden need?
  • What do I want to add to my garden next year? What can a do now to make that happen?

Writing down answers to these questions now will help in the planning for your next season. Take the time to write your thoughts down - I know if I do not write in my garden journal I will not remember what happened from year to year. A garden journal from previous years can be one of the most useful tools a vegetable gardener can have.

Clean and Sharpen tools:

If you have not cleaned and sharpened all your gardening tools, do so now. It is better to store a clean tool than a dirty one over the winter months. Good tools can be expensive so you want to take care of them and they will last you a lifetime. Learn more about garden tools.
