Summer Gardening Tips
Summer is here and so are many sunny and hot days, at least in most parts of the country.
Tomatoes and peppers are ripening and turning a beautiful color. The green beans are ready to be picked and if you planted enough you may even can some for future use.
Spinach and Salads wanting to go to bolt sooner than one could eat it. :-)
Oh well, it makes great chicken and duck food. They love their greens too.
Here are a few Summer Gardening Tips:
'The pick and drop” method is not recommended if your garden is being plagued by slugs though, because they will like to hide under the weeds. If that is the case haul the weeds to the compost pile.
We have successfully used this type head net to work in the garden if the bugs are just bugging us too much or for a hike in the woods. The Deet Free Herbal Bug Spray is really great.
Happy Summer Gardening
