1. Harvest some Carrots and freeze them, the carrots are becoming a snake haven because the kids haven't eaten any this year. (I haven't had a snake hiding in the garden, but I don't want to tempt them.
2. Plant some spinach soon, as we only have until Mid-October before gardening season is done.
1. Trek through the weeds, pulling as I go, to find my garden. 2. Plant some turnips, kale, fennel, and what ever else I can for fall. 3. Clean out the high tunnel and plant some herbs to see if they can overwinter...

1) A recent storm in northern Virginia (which the Weather Service won't call a tornado, but friends who had a tree fall on their house beg to differ) toppled the tomato cages that had extensions mounting on top, making them six feet tall, so my first task is to right those! For now, they seem happy as horizontal vines, but my garden paths are hard to navigate...
2) Plant seeds for fall crops: spinach, lettuce, carrots, broccoli, kale.
3) Plant garlic cloves. I did this for the first time last year and loved the results! One of my beds is built from cinder blocks, so I filled the openings in the blocks with soil and popped a garlic clove in each one. It was great to turn this into productive garden space (though it wasn't always easy tending the plants in the bed once the garlic had grown tall!) I was delighted with the size of some of the resulting garlic heads. I will have to plant many more this time, since I have used up so many as I have made sauce from my bumper crop of tomatoes! (I guess my fourth task is to continue harvesting tomatoes so I can eat and give away the best and make sauce from any with cracks or other flaws.)
