September’s Best Days To: According to Blum’s Farmer’s and Planter’s Almanac


I recently bought a copy of “Blum’s Farmer’s And Planter’s Almanac and have enjoyed reading it, especially as the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler.  Time to do a lot of things to get ready for the winter and another growing season next year.  Here’s what I found today:

Plant above ground crops: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 17, 18, 19 (we’re doing rye grass and hairy vetch)

Plant root crops: 1, 4, 5, 23, 27, 28

Plant Flowers: 4, 5, 10, 11

Transplant: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14

Seed beds: 4, 5, 12, 13, 14

Prune: To encourage growth: 4, 5, 23…To discourage growth: 15, 16, 20, 21

Apply chemical fertilizer: 12. 13, 14, 22

Apply organic fertilizer: 4, 5, 23

Destroy weeds: 2, 3, 6, 7, 29, 30

Harvest Crops: 24, 25, 26

Wean: 15-23 (luckily we’re done with all the weaning)

Kill farm Meat: 1, 24-30

Set hens & incubators: 15-22
