This week

Cool weather again for the next 8 days.  Lows from 37 to 46 and highs from 47 to 56 degrees.  Good indicators that the growing season is coming to a close.

Most farm stands are closed but a few are still open.  Call to make sure they are open but mostly open during the weekends.

Pumpkins, winter squash, apples, pears and canned products.

Winter gardens still going strong.  Warm season veggies not doing well with the cold weather unless protected under plastic.

Mulch tender plants.  Mulch roses, blueberries.  Don't mulch raspberries as mulch will cause root rot unless for just a few cold nights.

Pruning tree fruits is in full swing.  Prune raspberries.  Wait until February to do grapes but depends on how much you have.  General pruning November thru March.

Drain water from equipment and add a little anti freeze.  Drain all irrigation systems now that it is raining.

Central Oregon - cooler; with lows 26 to 37 and highs 43 to 50.  Rained expected 4 out of 8 days and lots of clouds.
