Yacon (also Sunroot) 03 Dec, T & K Gauthier (USA - Zone 5a climate)
After pulling the yacon plant (we only have one), how do we store the rhizomes until spring planting time? We have a high tunnel, but I don't think it would be happy there over winter.

If covered with agribon frost cover or pv now (Dec. 1), could I sow carrots ? We have had 2 frosts?

I suggest you go by the planting guide for your climate zone.
Tomato 24 Nov, Max (USA - Zone 10b climate)
My tomato plants in zone 10b (Los Angeles, CA) still continue to develop new flowers and grow a lot of new fruit. It seems like it is recommended to remove the plants at the end of the growing season... but how do I know when that is?
Tomato 26 Nov, Anonymous (USA - Zone 9b climate)
It is probably an indeterminate variety (will keep growing), they can keep growing if you fertilise and water them. Determinate varieties only grow so high and most of the tomatoes ripen at the same time. Depending on what your seasons are like you could keep growing it. Or if you have produced a good crop and need the ground for another crop soon pull it out and ready the ground for the next crop or season.

It doesn't really matter. Different potatoes are good/better for different cooking, Try a search for 'potato varieties usa' to get some more results.

Can I direct seed outdoors in flats in November after it cools down? I don’t have space indoors to start seeds.

Read the planting guide for growing leeks in your zone. It is the monthly calendar at the top of the page.

You could try, if they fail then stick to the planting guide here.
Asparagus 08 Nov, Jean (USA - Zone 9b climate)
I live in Nipomo ca 9 b why can’t s as I grow asparagus from crowns?
Asparagus 09 Nov, (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Sounds like you live in arid desert country. If so it might not grow in those conditions. If you have better conditions than desert you could try. Google about growing it.
Garlic 07 Nov, Cici (USA - Zone 6a climate)
Other advise different from this is you can't just dry garlic for a day. Should be 2-3 weeks in shade with plenty of air circulation. Only way it will keep for 6-12 months depending on variety. I hang mine in an open shed/barn. Then trim off leaves and roots and store in cool dry place for long term storage.
Garlic 09 Nov, Anonymous (USA - Zone 9b climate)
You could dig up and dry for a day, but in storing them put them in an open tray only one bulb/clump deep. Don't store in a big clump - they will sweat and rot. Your suggestion is pretty spot on. I pull my shallot bulbs out and leave them in the sun for a week or two. Trim the top off and put them in a tray 40mm x 60mm about 50cm deep. Store in the shade so they have air flow around them.
Strawberry Plants 02 Nov, Benita (USA - Zone 10a climate)
What type of Strawberries can I plant in Zone 10A. so when I transplant, the crowns are already in proper placement depth in soil. Planted seascape everbearing bareroots but they all died.. pls advise. Thank you.
Strawberry Plants 03 Nov, Anonymous (USA - Zone 10a climate)
Don't cover with soil the growing tip part of the crown, you will kill the plant. Plant them and try and cover them with some shade for a week or so to help them to establish.
Strawberry Plants 03 Nov, Anonymous (USA - Zone 6a climate)
If you want a good crop buy new runner plants from a plant producer. Also read up about how to plant and grow them.

Artichokes (Globe) 28 Oct, Karen Jean (USA - Zone 9b climate)
Can I grow artichoke seed green globe & Purple of Romagna in a plant pot? I have a 14” pot or should I go larger? How many seeds should I plant in one?
Artichokes (Globe) 28 Oct, Anonymous (USA - Zone 10b climate)
Plant Spacing- 160-200cm, 5-7 feet. That is between each plant.
Tomato 22 Oct, Gerald Swanson (USA - Zone 10a climate)
Can you grow tomatoes in the winter (Zone 10a)? Are there certain varieties better suited for winter months here?
Tomato 23 Oct, colleen (USA - Zone 10b climate)
I believe I used to live in zone 10a when I lived in Los Angeles (Van Nuys). I *did* manage to grow some tomatoes over winter a couple of times, though I'm not sure it was worth it.
