The Full Beaver Moon

In 2023, November’s full Moon occurs on Monday, November 27. Read our November Moon page for more information!

November Gardening

Use small stakes or markers where you’ve planted bulbs or late-starting plants in the perennial garden to avoid disturbing them when you begin spring soil preparation.

Check trees around your house for weak branches that should be removed by you now, rather than by snow and ice later.
