Time for fall harvests and some planting.

Garlic comparison: spring vs. autumn...
I am linking this to an article in Mother Earth News by Shelley Stonebrook. Each year the Earthwork Farm Harvest Gathering roughly coincides with the optimal time for planting garlic in Earthwork Farm's plant hardiness zone (zone 4). The basic rule for planting garlic in autumn is to plant approximately 4 to 6 weeks before the ground freezes (amend soil as necessary locally).
