New Mexico Extension Master Gardeners

It's fall in New Mexico! Hot air balloons dot the blue sky, the heat has released its hold and the native asters are in bloom along the roadsides. If you're gardening in a mountainous area of the state, begin to mulch your more tender plants in preparation for the winter. And throughout the high desert plains areas and along the Rio Grande Bosque, it's a great time to plant trees and perennials in your garden, allowing them to establish some roots before the cold sets in. To those of you who live in southern New Mexico, it's time to seed your cold crops like lettuces, broccoli and cabbages.
