summer vegetable garden
For the summer vegetable garden you have plenty of sun but you have to do the watering
With a summer vegetable garden it is
better to have drip or trickle
irrigation then you donít need to worry about watering. You just
have to worry about picking the
vegetables and eating them. If you planted
seeds of the same vegetable at different intervals like a week apart,
you will have a steady
As you eat your way through your garden donít forget to plant more seeds of the winter types like cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli to keep you going through the autumn and early winter.
With your summer vegetable garden keep the mulch covering the ground to keep the water in and the weeds out. Also mulch the walkways to keep the weeds from going to seed. In the walkways bark is a good mulch to keep the weeds under control. If you want to start collecting seeds for next season let a few of the vegetables go to seed.
Also keep throwing seeds around as there will be time for another crop before the winter sets in.
If you got a bug problem think about getting chickens if you have room or just set up a frog pond. Frogs and toads are good insect eaters but chickens eat toads so just stick to one. I like chickens because you get eggs and they help fertilize and scratch up the garden which all help. Chickens eat everything that moves so donít let them out after the rain or they will eat the worms. Anyway summer is the time to reap the rewards of a summer vegetable garden.
