Here’s a wee little task list of what to plant and do around the garden during the month of November:
WHAT TO PLANT
- Seed in Ground: carrots, leaf lettuce, kale, mustard greens, swiss chard, collard greens, bok choi, onion seed (early), radish, spinach, turnip (early), peas, Brussel sprouts, beets, strawberries, cilantro, fennel, dill, cabbage
- Seed Indoors: broccoli, cabbage, leeks
WHAT TO DO
- Fruit trees will arrive at nurseries for fall planting; shop early for the best selection.
- Harvest cold-sensitive veggies—such as tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers—that you planted in July.
- Under row covers, plant cool-loving crops, such as Brussels sprouts, cabbage, Chinese cabbage, broccoli, peas, carrots, kale, radishes, mustard, turnips, beets, and spinach.
- Plant strawberries (‘Chandler’, ‘Sweet Charlie’, and ‘Sequoia’) so plants will be established by spring.
- Sow seeds of poppies, larkspur, and delphiniums for early spring color.
