July in the Garden

Garden

THE DIRT
It’s hot! Make sure you water deeply, and less often, to prevent stress from drought. Consider mulching to prevent weeds and conserve moisture. Watch for insects and disease and treat as needed. Remove harvested plants that are no longer producing before they draw insects or disease. If vacationing, make sure you have someone who can harvest and water while you’re away.

 

 

Tips:
Plan your fall vegetable garden! If growing from seed, make sure the plants have enough time to mature before the first freeze date. Look at the back of your seed packets to determine the number of days until harvest so you’ll know what to plant and when. Now is the time to plant your pumpkins for Halloween!
