From September to November the autumn harvest brings a variety of healthy and delicious produce, from squash and sweet potatoes to apples and pears. While almost all produce can be purchased year round, transporting produce across the country isn’t easy. Buying local seasonal produce not only reduces our carbon footprint, it also helps local economies and results in more nutritious produce. Check out some top autumnal produce picks that are both delicious and super healthy. Don’t be afraid to try something new!
If you want to have a great lawn next year, the time to spray for weeds is the fall. Weeds start to grow in the fall, then go dormant over the winter, and fully emerge thext spring/summer. If you know you have an issue with specific weeds every year, such as dandelions, chickweed, or henbit, you can spray for them when they are growing back with the warm days and cool nights that fall brings. If you have any spots where the weeds grow in clusters, or areas of your yard that are prone to weeds, this is where you should focus your spraying. Make sure you use the proper herbicide, and determine the right time as well, if you are spraying pre-emergence or post-emergence.
