I was wondering what some of you will be planting in your vegetable garden in the next few weeks.

Since my tomato garden is all cleared out (sniff sniff) I'm ready to plant garlic, so any suggestions are welcome!

I've never planted mums, but I'd like to. Anyone grow mums?

Uhm, and while we're on the subject.....what other late blooming flowers besides mums are there? I have stuff blooming from early spring until now, then it all starts looking dead. (so even if it's stuff to plant in the spring that's ok, I just want to start researching now) I'm in zone 5.

there was a show I watched this morning on a local TV station, but now I can't the video or story to come up. I didn't write down the plants he talked about because I thought I could check it out later online......... Evil or Very Mad
I found a video they did last year and here are a few of the plants he suggested:

Blue Mist Shrub, blooms later, loves sun and attracts bees.
Vibernum
Buttercup bush
Rose of Sharon
St. John's wort
Clemitas
One thing I remembered from today are those decrative heads of cabbage.

I try and plant the kind of mums that should take the frost and cold and come back up the following year, but they never do.

when are garden is done in the fall sence it is so big we plant a cover crop of rye in the fall and till it in the ground in the spring it keeps the weeds down next year and adds nutrision to the soil.

When can we split daylilies? Can you pull them out and store in a cool place for the winter? I really want to get some of this stuff thinned out, it's so overgrown. If black eyed susan's have a fungus, should I pull them all out and replant new ones?

Fan- since you don't have much room, maybe you could stack pots in a corner? "build up" so to speak. A large pot, then a medium pot, then a smaller pot on top of that. Or....is there anyplace to hang something from? like do more hanging baskets?

Karen- I think you should divide your lilies in the spring. As for storing them over the winter...not sure. I have a couple of different types, my day lilies I don't think would make it (more like grassy roots)...but I have some yucca lillies that would (there more like tubers). As for the black eyed susans, I'd just leave them and wait to see what they do next year. Unless they are totally toast. I have a lot of stuff that looks crappy because of the weather this year. sucks.

Now I have a question.....how long do morning glories bloom? (and when?) Am I right in that they want only morning sun, not all day? I'd like to plant some on the east side of our deck to climb up the lattice. (in back of my day lilies btw... LOL)

DD, the black eyed susan's that i had in the front of the house near the mailbox, did not even come up this year, they were so bad after last summer. Now the ones in the back look the same.
I don't know anything about morning glories,(or anything else for that matter), but I need something that will take off pretty fast on the pergola (sp), that wooden frame Danny built. I have a wisteria planted in one corner, but it hasn't progressed very much. I was thinking a clematis in the other corner might do well. I don't get sun back there till later in the afternoon, so the morning glories wouldn't work.
