It is the December To Do List, and we are in the middle of winter garden season.  Weather is COLD, and so far it has been relatively wet. 

It is time to plant:

  • Asparagus
  • Fava beans
  • Bok choy
  • Broccoli rabe
  • Garlic
  • Kale
  • Loose leaf lettuce
  • Mustard
  • Onion sets
  • Radish

Do not plant yet:

  • Bareroot trees

  • Berries

Chores include:

  • Protect succulents from water
  • Frost protection
  • Clean up – but leave some debris remaining
  • Spray dormant trees (peach leaf curl)
  • Plant bulbs


We finish up with a Listener Q&A section.  Topics covered include:

  • What are your thoughts on using a moisture meter to determine if plants need water?
  • How often should a yard be watered during the winter?
  • Banana tree – should it be inside or outside during the winter?
  • Putting asparagus plants down for the winter
  • Christmas cactus best practices
