THE DIRT

It’s not too late to plant a great summer garden! And, it’s time to plant and start seeds for fall crops. Be on the lookout for disease and insect damage and take action to prevent spread. If you’ve got a problem with slugs, try trapping them in a container of fresh beer!

 

Tips:

 Tap on your tomato plants to encourage good pollination. Water daily and feed them once fruit has set. Pinch off the suckers (side stems) if you have a strong central stem. You can plant broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower now for winter harvest. You can also start fall crop seeds such as eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to set out in July.
