Question: I am trying to get a lead on how to repair the steps that go from my kitchen sliding-glass door to my fenced-in patio. The steps have a big crack at the bottom. As a result, the steps are almost suspended from the house. I’ve tried to get someone to come to my house for an estimate, but the places I called said my repair is too small for them. Where can I go?
Here’s a tale of two turnips, one big, one small. One a quick crop, one slow. One for fresh eating, the other for winter storage.
When I was growing up, storage turnips were the only kind I knew. They were round globes at least baseball size, yellow, white, or purple-topped. We made a point of eating them at Thanksgiving, strong-flavored and richly buttered.
Tip of the week
Before storing wooden garden stakes, allow mud to dry and remove it with a stiff brush. Stakes should be bundled and stored in a dry space for the winter. Don’t leave stakes lying around the garden; ground moisture will cause them to rot and they may attract termites.

Question: I have a somewhat large yard, and I realize I don’t have time to get everything I want to do done in terms of cleanup before the weather turns really cold. If I were to prioritize, say, five things that I should do in the garden before December, what would you recommend?
