Richard Hentschel, Extension Specialist, Green Industry Programming
Last of the garden chores are covered by Richard Hentschel, host of Green Side Up. Late season vegetable gardens should be about done right now so go ahead and clean up the debris. Adding composts to the soil is a good thing to do this time of year. Lawns should also be about done by now so after the last mowing, be sure to clean the underside of the deck, add fuel conditioner and run the mower for long enough to warm the engine and get conditioner through the carburetor. Store used pesticides safely. Remember to remove the garden hose from the frost free spigot or it won't be frost free and could freeze and burst.
