🥕 Check out the latest blog post from Backyard Growers‘ founder & executive director Lara Lepionka, where she’s sharing guidance on what you should be doing in your veggie garden NOW, and the three attributes of a successful vegetable gardener during the pandemic growing season 🌿🍅🦋 Happy growing!
Here’s an excerpt:
“Don’t forget to mulch around your veggies to keep the weeds down and the soil moist. Thin your carrots. Those tomato seedlings look small now, but they will soon take over so stake or cage them now. Eat your spinach before the leaf miners wreak havoc or before it bolts in the heat. There’s nothing sadder than a bolting spinach. Nothing.
As we move forward into the heart of the growing season and into the great ridiculous unknown, I would like to share with you what I think are the top three attributes of a successful vegetable gardener during the pandemic growing season.”
