November Dates to Remember!


Fall is in full swing all across the country, and we hope you're getting out and seeing the sights, tasting the flavors, and celebrating the bounty of the harvest season! As you prepare your garden for winter and your home for the holidays, don't forget these important dates.

Nov. 2 - Daylight Savings Time Ends - It's time to "fall back"! Set your clocks back one hour to give yourself more morning daylight to garden by...or, if you're like me, another hour to sleep in!

Nov. 4 - Election Day - The 2008 election has been called "historic" for more than one reason, so get out there and make sure your voice is heard!

Nov. 9-15 - National Hunger and Homeless Awareness Week - This week's purpose is to bring greater awareness to the problems of hunger and homelessness. Get involved in your own community - volunteer at a soup kitchen, harvest veggies from your garden for a food bank, donate unwanted clothing to a shelter, or send money to a service organization.

Nov. 11 - Veterans Day - Remember the sacrifices made by America's military veterans.

Nov. 13-19 - Green Ribbon Awareness Week - This week has been set aside to encourage people to register as organ and tissue donors.

Nov. 15 - America Recycles Day - If you aren't already recycling at home or at the office, take the pledge and make an effort to do more!

Nov. 17 - Homemade Bread Day - Baking homemade bread can be a great way to bring the family together. Whip up some herb butter with fresh herbs from the garden to go along with your wholesome creation, then slather on and enjoy!

Nov. 27 - Thanksgiving Day - Give thanks for the bounty of our gardens!

Nov. 28 - Black Friday - The unofficial beginning of the Christmas shopping season. This year, why not save time and gas by staying home and ordering online?!
