Passion Vine

The temperatures are starting to warm up, and so are our crops! Now’s the perfect time to start planting some summer crops for the next season.

Vegetables & Herbs – Warm-season crops are in their prime this month. One mistake new gardeners make is to not harvest vegetables at their peak quality. Left on the plant too long, many will decline in quality.

  • Eggplant can become tough and bitter; green beans stringy and less tasty;
  • Squash and cucumbers become too mature with tough skin and large tough seeds.
  • If you have mockingbirds, squirrels, and other raiders, it may be wise to pick your tomatoes early and allow them to ripen on the kitchen counter.

Fertilize growing crops with a natural, organic fertilizer that not only promotes healthy plant growth but is also good for your soil.
