Gardener’s almanac (Oct. 6)

Early October chill – I didn’t expect to see “patchy frost” in the forecast this early in October. If you have any tender plants that you can’t bear to see damaged, cover them with sheets or cart them into the garage. As you bring houseplants into the house, wash them off first with strong blasts of water from the hose. To force insects out of the soil, soak the pot in a tub of lukewarm water for about 15 minutes, Ward Upham of K-State says.
