We are down to the last three months of 2020 and despite the pandemic, which has severely restricted all sorts of activities for most people, it seems to me like an eye blink since the year began.
In about six weeks I will return to Florida for the winter, but there is still lots of gardening to finish before I leave.
Garden clean up and planting garlic are my top two priorities right now, but I have red cabbage, potatoes, carrots and Brussels sprouts to harvest as well. I also hope my fall crop of beets is able to grow to harvest size and the Napa cabbage I transplanted in mid-September matures. It was a very dry September and the 3-inch rainfall earlier this week was a bit too late to help much.
Most years, I grow at least some winter squash, since I really enjoy eating this long-lasting,
