Hey there Backyard Farmers!
Summer is right around the corner! Although some of us may already be experiencing the heat in some areas of the country, what's to come will undoubtedly require some prep to prevent our hard work from getting heat damage. To help, we've put together a list of our summer to-do's to ensure that your garden continues prospering this next season!

Mulching - Whether you choose to make your own or buy near your local garden center, mulch can keep your herbs and veggies retaining moisture as temperatures rise. Additionally, mulching does a remarkable job of preventing pesky weed growth. Need any ideas for which mulch to use? Keep scrolling downward to find our latest blog topic on mulching options. 

Fertilize - Summer is the perfect time to give your plants a midseason boost to ensure that your soil remains nutrient-rich. 

Aim to Increase Watering - As you can imagine, with higher temperatures your soil is bound to lose its moisture much quicker. Aim to monitor your soil more frequently and adjust your watering schedule to be during the coolest time of the day. 

Have a Slant-Roof Greenhouse? Simply because it's summer doesn't mean your greenhouse can't be used. If you haven't already, make sure to install your shade cloth in your greenhouse to ensure your plants don't get heat stress. For more tips on utilizing your greenhouse in the summer, visit our blog post "How to use a greenhouse in the summer".

As always, we're real people and are always happy to help! Simply send us a message or give us a call at 877-741-2667!
