November gardening chores and a Thanksgiving Flag
It's starting to get cold, wet and uninviting to be out of doors these days, but on the good days when the sun is out, you can still plant bulbs, even tulips, early in the month. Chrysanthemums can be cut back to about three inches above ground.
You can also start to think about moving perennials and planting trees. Cutting down the dead stems and leaves of asparagus in a good idea and a wintertime feeding of compost and good mulch will help them get a good start in the spring.
I'm very pleased I too my lawnmower into the shop. It's all repaired, oiled and will be ready to start right up in the spring, and now that I have a big garage, I can store the garden tools inside easily without stumbling around them in the tool shed. It's a good feeling to have everything kind of buttoned down for the winter so that I can get started thinking about the coming holidays and how to prepare for them.
Here's a cheery flag to decorate the front porch.
