It's nearing the end of July here in Middle Tennessee and tomatoes and cucumbers are at peak production! Peppers are coming in this season as hot as the weather and many gardeners here have had their fill of the heat!
While we all patiently (or impatiently) wait for Fall, it's now time to start planning and sowing your cool-season crops. These include many leafy greens and brassicas that can be planted now for harvest in late fall - early winter. One of the great things about our mild winters is that we can grow crops all throughout the year. So if you're like me, (with a little help from frost cloth) I will continue my gardening throughout the winter months into spring!
Seed indoors (transplant)
There is much left to do in the garden! Don't forget as you transition your gardens from summer to fall, remember to replenish your soil by adding a few inches of organic compost.
