Now that this year is winding down for all us northerners, I'm sure we are all thinking about next year and what to do differently/ more etc.
For me: I'm about to go get bins to make worm bins to do worm composting through the winter (for the first time!). In the early spring along with the lettuce, spinach, chard, onions, garlic, broccoli and cabbage, I will plant peas to grow up the tomato cages, on the theory that they will be done and gone before they do any serious shading of the tomatoes.
I'm thinking about cutting down a dying tree in my front yard to make a sunny space to expand the veggie garden into the front.
Scatter more herbs through the garden instead of keeping them segregated in the herb garden (I already do some of that, but MORE).
Give up on planting zucchini anywhere but flowerbeds and try more butternut / delicata squashes, see if they will resist the SVB's better.
Quit growing early girl tomatoes and try a cherry tomato instead (along with the beefsteak and ultimate opener). Do NOT get seduced by all you eager beavers into planting tomato seeds any earlier than Valentines day!
Start the seeds for fall garden in potting soil/ pots, so that I can baby them a bit more and get some good starts for the fall garden. Have seeds of spinach and lettuce on hand to plant in the hummingbird/ butterfly garden when it is cut down.
I'm sure there's more, but that's what I can think of off hand....
