October is a fine time to be in the garden. Less bugs, less heat, but still some good sunshine, rain, and decent planting windows. Make sure to keep your garden planted either in fresh veggies or by starting your over-wintered cover crop.
I like to say that Ohio is a four season growing environment. I grow and harvest every month of the year including January and February. I recently did a class on Growing Over Winter and many asked if I had a recording of that to view. You are in luck. Check out the Growing Over Winter webinar below.
There is still plenty of time to get seeds in the ground so that you can enjoy some fresh veggies all year long.
The Urban Gardening Grant RFP is open. This is a chance to get some funding to support your garden. Make sure to read the application information carefully.
Grant applications are due by Friday October 29th, 2021
For more information on the grant check out the Columbus Foundation website.
Radishes are one of my favorite vegetables to grow. Easy, early and tasty, they signal spring harvest. They make dynamite pickles and are a great way to use fresh harvested radishes from your garden. Jenny and I are at it again with a quick and easy two-minute video to show you how to grow, harvest and prepare spicy radish pickles.
