Linda’s list for Oct. 14: Plant garlic, collect leaves, control leaf pests

This is the wrong time of year to spread manure or soluble fertilizers (nutrients, especially nitrogen, leach away in the winter rains), but you can enrich your garlic soil with finished compost because the action of micro-organisms in the composting process makes nitrogen less soluble. Also, if your soil pH is low, mix in agricultural lime before planting the garlic. Later on, when it gets cold, apply a thick leaf mulch to the garlic bed. And I always have to mention this: if garlic shoots poke up in mid-winter, don’t worry about it--they are very hardy and will be fine.

Empathy

It is generally accepted that there are three kinds of empathy: cognitive, emotional, and compassionate. Cognitive empathy is the ability to understand what someone else might be thinking, and as such, it is more like intuition than empathy. However, cognitive empathy essentially adds the ability to respond at a deeper level. Emotional empathy is the ability to sense someone’s feelings. It helps us build a temporary emotional bond or connection. Compassionate empathy moves us to help in whatever way we can. Essentially it is the feeling that goes along with acts of compassion.
