You will find a very useful October gardening calendar based on your location [HERE], which will list for your the main garden chores including planting, fertilizing, controlling pests, and maintenance.

Also, take notes on this year’s garden. And remember to read your garden journal from last year. What went and what did not? Which pests and diseases were about? What hints and reminders did you leave for your future self?

Above all, enjoy the fruits of your labor!
