 July Garden Bounty

July garden bounty

The summer garden is in full swing. July is the time of year for harvesting the heat lovers like tomatoes, eggplant, zucchini, cucumbers, sprouting broccoli, green beans, all types of peppers, garlic, basil with other Mediterranean herbs.

Peppers, zucchini, and eggplant are just ready to start harvesting, but will be in mid July. My tomato plants have many baby tomatoes and are typically ready to start harvesting by the 4th of July. I just re-planted my cucumber plants for the third time. They love this heat and humidity so should be producing within the month.

1. Eggplant-add this native from India to your garden
2. Growing zucchini and summer squash
3. Peppers are for every taste and garden
4. Tomatoes 101, everything you need to know to grow great tomatoes
5. Cucumber info and tips for growing

By the end of the month, there will be more summer veggies than we can eat and will start preserving the extra. Preservation garden
