Wow, fall is starting to be in the air.  Time  to make room to store all the winter squash, and making plans for garlic planting. Then perhaps it is time to harvest and store some of the beets too!
Another tip for fall is to get all your row covers or blankets, tarps or whatever you use to cover crops for those few nights of frost we are bound to get here in Taos.  I get everything ready so that I can cover quickly on that night when a storm clears out and it gets COLD! The normal pattern here in Taos is to have a few nights of frost, and then for the nights to warm back up for another 2 to 4 weeks.  So it can be worthwhile to take the time to cover crops.
