The Garden In July
It is officially Summertime! Time for playing in the pool, grilling with friends, and evenings spent watching fireflies from the deck. Also time to get those warm season vegetables planted. This is a great family activity. Have kids choose seeds or plants of vegetables they want to grow. They can plant, water, and keep watch for sprouts. Enjoy fresh produce all summer with only a few square yards of space. No room for a veggie patch? Many growers have developed fruit and vegetable varieties well-suited for containers. Try blueberries, lettuce, tomatoes, herbs, or strawberries. Most need a full day of sun, so locate pots accordingly. Enjoy!
