Is it too early to be thinking
about Fall Gardening?

 For many of us all over the nation, this gardening year looks a bit different! This year has been full of Summer heatwaves that may have taken a toll on your growing greens. You may have even opted to return to gardening in the Fall instead after experiencing weeks of over 100-degree weather. If so, then we encourage you to continue below as we share tips for getting through the rest of your summer gardening season while also helping you prepare to take advantage of the next season.

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.

August Backyard Farming Tips
Plants for August Gardening
For many parts of the US, we can take advantage of a second round of summer gardening. Depending on your location these favorites are perfect to start from seed this month: Peas, Summer Squash, Peas, Lettuce, Kale, cucumber, cilantro, dill, carrots, and basil!
Watering Adjustments
Continue gardening and watering in the early mornings and/or late afternoons as long as temperatures remain above 90 degrees.
Don't hesitate to use a moisture meter as well, it can be easy to misjudge when your plant is adequately watered. For accurate readings, be sure to check moisture levels during late afternoons when plants can perk-up from the sun going down.

Try adding sandy loam dirt, dry soil, and or ash to their bathing spot to help with removing excess feather oil and unwanted pests.
