ONLY IN OCTOBER
The harvest moon has come and gone, and our next full moon is the
Hunter's Moon. This is the month when the leaves are falling and the game is fattened. Now is the time for hunting and laying in a store of provisions for the long winter ahead. October’s Moon is also known as the Travel Moon and the Dying Moon. October is the month that has something for everyone:
DAYS OF OCTOBER
World Vegetable Day
Mad Hatter Day
Be Bald and Be Free Day
Make a Difference Day
National Candy Corn Day
HALLOWEEN...plus many others
Be sure and not neglect your yard and garden during the month of October. Now is the time to over seed warm-season grasses such as centipede or Bermuda with annual ryegrass for a green lawn during the up coming winter months. Also it is the time to remove the faded annuals form your color beds and replace them with mums and pansies and other fall annuals such as ornamental kale and cabbage. It not too late to sow seeds of mustard, collards, turnips, and lettuce for that fall garden.
October has two flowers of the month: the elegant Cosmos and the tasty Calendula.
