“I am only one, but still I am one.

I cannot do everything, but still I can do something.

I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.”

—Helen Keller

 

ACTIVITIES (like planting, for instance–things you can do on a personal, local level)

For the Flying Things: The birds, the bees, and butterflies!


Gardening This Month:

  • It’s a good time to build any new beds you want for next year’s garden, if you have time or if your climate won’t allow you to do it next month.
  • It’s also a good time to repair and/or build your cold frames that you’ll need if you’re planning a late fall or winter crop. Or, depending on your climate and your preferences, you can heavily mulch any crops that are cold hardy and planned for a late harvest–like Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, potatoes, to name a few.
