Caring For Our Place on the Prairie
SEPTEMBER TO DO LIST
• Harvest winter squash when the ground spot changes from a white to a cream or gold color.
• Ripen green tomatoes indoors as frost threatens; check often and discard rotting fruit.
• In the fall, mound soil from another part of the garden around the base of the rose for additional protection from the cold.
• Plant limited area cool season lawns of blends of bluegrass by seeding and sodding.
Areate lawns for more effective water and fertilizer usage.
