What to do in the garden NOW!
Successive planting: Continue to plant carrots, beets, radishes, beans over the next 4 weeks. They will have sufficient time to mature and will provide a longer harvest.
Prune: Pinch back shoots between stalk and stems on tomato plants to keep them manageable.This also helps divert energy to fruit production rather than excessive leaf production.
Water: While weather is cooler and plants are smaller, watering needs will be less. Pay attention when weather gets hotter and plants get larger and adjust watering accordingly.
Harvest: Wondering if something is ready to harvest? Check out this lesson plan to help understand how to decide.
Plan: A summer evening in the garden. Bring your school community together to enjoy the late day light and sounds in the garden (and sneak in a little weeding)
