Maintain sugar water feeders throughout November as long as the hummingbirds are buzzing around. Occasionally rufous hummingbirds stay all winter.

Have you planted your first batch of onion transplants yet? If not, visit http://www.dixondalefarms.com/ or your favorite nursery at this time.

Make plans to add on, improve or learn to do something new or different in your home gardens. How can I conserve water better?

Be ready to move the cold sensitive tropical plants such as bougainvilleas, hibiscus, plumeria, purple fountain grass, citrus, mandevilla and other tender plants into the greenhouse or garage at the first cold weather. Plant for ventilation as it can get pretty warm in San Antonio in November.
