It is the August To Do List, and we are having a gorgeous summer that is offering up IDEAL garden conditions. Vegetable and fruit harvests are bountiful, but there is prep work for fall piling up.
It is time to: Plant seeds in ground, including: beets, cabbage, carrots, turnips, potatoes
Prep garden beds for Fall planting in September: Weed, compost
Dead-head flowers Pick up fallen fruit Cut off suckers Prevent weeds from going to seed Collect seeds Harvest melons Order fall bulbs (daffodils, tulips, etc) Deep water trees
We finish up with a Listener Q&A section. Topics covered include:
Are pill bugs good for the soil? Do I need to keep “braiding” my plant? Habanero not blooming – why? Fig tree only produce dry, inedible figs. Why?
