  • Plant greens of all kinds this month: collards, turnips, kale, Swiss chard and spinach, as well as lettuces and salad greens.
  • Refrigerate tulip and hyacinth bulbs now, so they’ll get the minimum six to eight weeks of chill time before planting in late December or January.
  • Use your raked leaves for mulch under trees and in planting beds to help build the soil.
