Table of Contents: Harvest Moon

September 22, 2014

Do you hear that crunch of leaves underfoot? September is our favorite season. The air is tinged both with nostalgia for our school days and anticipation of the holidays. This week we’ll be picking apples (and planting them), stringing our own DIY dried vegetables, and filling our window boxes with the colors of autumn. Join us:

Above: Some gardens come into their own in autumn. Like Grace Kennedy’s. See more in It’s High Season in Grace Kennedy’s Garden.


  • We’ll be exploring both inside and out of a stylish backyard shed with a secret back door in this week’s Architect Visit.
  • Now is the time to plant next year’s fruit tree. If you’re thinking of an apple tree, we’ll tell you everything you need to know before planting one in this this week’s Field Guide.


  • We’ve tracked down furniture and accessories you can leave outdoors year round; see our favorite concrete pieces in this week’s 10 Easy Pieces. (And if you missed last week’s ode to the humble concrete block, see 10 Genius Garden Hacks with Concrete.)
  • We’re all invited to Meredith’s house for dinner. This week she launches our new feature, The Dinner Party Project, with a step-by-step plan that makes throwing a party as simple as, well, cooking dinner. Next up? Stay tuned, because we’ll be asking for your favorite garden-to-table recipes to make a menu for youe next installment of The Dinner Party Project.


  • Inspired by her New England forebears, Justine figures out how to make colonial-style dried vegetable garlands in this week’s DIY. (Yes, she had some help from her after-school assistants.)


  • Christine Chitnis & Co. goes apple picking as we celebrate the season of U-Pick Orchards (see directions to our favorites) in this week’s Garden Visit.
  • Jeanne investigates the pros and cons of different materials for window boxes. Zinc, wood, terra cotta: which one is right for you? See this week’s Hardscaping 101. Photograph via The Balcony Gardener.


And see what’s happening on Remodelista this week, where the editors are visiting Kitchens Around the World.
