- Start harvesting your maincrop potatoes as the leaves die back. Store your potatoes in thick paper bags.
- Lift & dry onions, shallots & garlic once the foliage has flopped over and yellowed.

- Remove the lower leaves of cordon tomatoes up to the lowest truss, to let more light and air reach the fruits
- Sow green manure
