Planning And Planting A Late Summer Garden – Getting Extra From Your Garden Space This Year!
Almost all of the crops that do well in the cooler seasons of early spring and summer can once again thrive in late summer and fall - giving you a chance to enjoy even more fresh veggies before the proverbial snow starts to fly.
Better yet, with the warmer soil temperatures in late summer - all of the plantings can be done through direct sowing of seeds. That means for just a few dollars - you can enjoy mounds and mounds of fresh vegetables!
Clearing And Preparing Space In The Garden:
As many of your early season plants such as peas, cucumbers, zucchini or cabbage are harvested - it is a great time to clear them out and prepare the space for planting a second round of crops. We simply pull up our expired plants - chop them up and add them into our compost bins.
