You have one week left to attend the Toledo Farmers' Market for the 2017 season.

It's time to do some clean up and organizing for the next growing season. Now is a good time to till the soil to expose and kill insect pests that would otherwise over winter underground.

Don't forget to get those spring bulbs planted. If you want them to bloom for the holidays, put the bulbs in the refrigerator for six to eight weeks in a mesh or paper bag.

Plant the bulbs in a container as soon as you remove them for the refrigerator. Get those houseplants back in the house before the frost. But be sure to wash outdoor planters with soapy water and a splash of bleach before storing them for winter.

I hope you had the chance to plant some fall asters. Asters are always a welcoming sight in the cool fall days.

I hope to see you next week at the last Toledo Farmers' Market.
