OCTOBER IS “LET’S GET OUR GARDENS STARTED MONTH” AT TERRAGNOMA COMMUNITY DEMONSTRATION GARDEN. Fall is the best time to plant in the Central Coast, when the soil is warm and soon the winter rains will come to quench the soil’s summer thirst and help new root systems and the soil to build up.

It’s the time of planting our beloved Roots and Shoots or in other words, our yummy, comfort food-inspired starchy roots like potatoes, carrots, beets, etc and the diversity of leafy crops we enjoy all year-round in our mild climate: lettuces, spinach, kale, chard, collards, etc. During the cool season, we do in fact enjoy some fruits too: broccoli, cauliflower and related species do especially well this time of year. Herbs of all kinds can be rampant in the winter so take advantage of your rosemary, lavender, chives, wild leeks, etc.

    Hi Roxanne,

    I don’t know if you would remember me but I met you at collage night and you came to a party at our house on 308 Cayuga. Anyway I would love to check out your garden. When is the best time?? I will be in Oregon until Sunday. Congratulations on doing such a fantastic job!!!! Take care. Nancy
