You can get more from your summer vegetable garden if you follow some good advice.
I know where to find it and I'm sharing some authoritative tips with you.
The summer vegetable growing season is flying by, but that doesn't mean that the vegetable garden is ready to call it quits.
I came across some terrific advice from my fellow gardening comrades and bloggers to help extend the growing season:
- Marie's Gardening Blog at About.com Gardening has an informative vegetable gardening post titled "A Long Producing Vegetable Garden. Extend Your Vegetable Growing Season." Solid advice for the beginner gardener as well as those of us who need a reminder of the basics.
- Doug of Doug's Blog wrote a post titled, "Vegetable Gardening Tips" that offers more advanced "tricks" to coaxing more production from vegetables such as cabbage and brocolli. What about herbs like basil and parsley that you want to maintain for future harvest? Go see Doug.
- Oh Grow Up Blog has a timely post on "Second Season Gardens" with some recommendations for vegetables that can go a second round plus some others that can be tucked in now for the fall.
I'm off to a family reunion.
I have a "garden sitter" watching my vegetable garden for me- can you believe it?
Hope my green tomatoes ripen while I'm away.
