9 Late-Summer Garden Ideas
With summer drawing to a close, now is the best time to plan your autumn vegetable and flower gardens.
Tip No. 1: If you planted tomatoes and other vegetables during the past few months, harvest them often for an ongoing supply.
Pick tomatoes, peppers, and tomatillos early in the morning on the day you plan to eat them. Select okra, eggplants, squash, and cucumbers when they are small and tender. Sow turnips, mustard greens, beets, radishes, collards, and spinach now in the Middle and Lower South. If you have extras from your garden, share the bounty with family, neighbors, and friends.
