I know it's still the dog days of summer here in Texas, but can't you feel the change coming? Recent mornings have been refreshingly cool (even though we are still hitting the upper 80s-lower 90s most days), and it makes me wanna get out in the garden in do all kinds of tomfoolery. If you tend to be a bit ADD like me, a checklist is a good way to keep you on track. Here are my top October garden chores for Texas, but remember — always check with your people in the know for your area (county extension office, local garden center) for more specific tips and recommendations. Happy October!
