Gardening Tip!

Do you enjoy salad and other greens fresh from the garden? In season, they are fabulous, especially cut-and-come-again greens like leaf lettuces, arugula, mustard, and others. Yet have you seen the price of mixed greens—often called mesclun—at the grocery store lately? For what you would pay for two weeks worth of salad greens for a family of four, you can buy more than enough seed to keep you in salad all fall and well into winter.

Fall Tip

Caring for your lawn shouldn't stop just because it's getting colder out. Continue to mow your lawn while it is actively growing. For your final cut, do a high cut (around 2.5 – 3 inches) which will help prevent disease and set your lawn up for a green success next spring.
