Tips and Tasks  
If you’re an herb gardener you’ve probably been reaping the benefits of your hard work all summer long. Mint, Rosemary and Basil are just a few of the flavorful herbs you’ve probably harvested. As hard as it may seem though, we are heading towards the fall. This is the time that you want to start deciding where you are going to transplant your herbs for the winter. Herbs such as Parsley, Chives, Thyme and Rosemary can be dug up straight from the garden and moved to pots to continue producing all year long so that they are ready to go back outdoors next spring.

Continue to deep water and fertilize your lawn to give it the best chance of successfully surviving the winter. You can also look at what cool season grasses can grow in your particular area if you do not live in Western North Carolina, and order those seeds now so that procrastination doesn’t leave you seedless!
