Jamie’s July Gardening Tips

Believe it or not, it is time to start planning your fall garden!  Plant that big pumpkin for Halloween now.  Keep your grass from going to seed.  Fallow soil to conserve moisture for germination of fall crops and help reduce the nematode population in the soil.  Clean off harvested rows immediately to prevent insect and disease buildup.  Plant the following vegetables no later than July 20 to allow time to mature before frost: tomatoes, okra, corn, pole beans and lima beans.  Also plant cucumbers, squash, and snap beans.  Water deeply and less often as needed to prevent drought stress.   Also, keep your garden well mulched to prevent weeds and conserve moisture.
