It’s autumn! Whether you planted an autumn garden or are putting your garden to bed for the winter, here’s what to do in April.
15 MINUTES A DAY Hey, you! Did you get outside today? Take advantage of this beautiful autumn weather by spending at least 15 minutes a day connecting with your garden.
TASKS IN APRIL This month you’ll be harvesting, maintaining active gardens and putting inactive gardens to bed for the season, and planting garlic and fruit crops. There will be plenty to do inside to process the harvest and preserve the excess. Note: In winter I think of my zone as cool mountain. Your experience may vary depending on your geographical location.
