If you want to make sure you have a fruitful fall vegetable garden, July is the time to do it. Depending on where you garden, you likely have your first zucchini already, or maybe you're waiting (less-than-patiently) for the first ripe tomato of the season.
Even though, for many of us, the temperature is soaring, it will be fall before you know it. This is the time to figure out whether you want to grow broccoli or peas this fall. If it is, now's the time to hunt down some transplants and get them into the ground.
Many of us also have bare spots in our garden now. I just harvested my garlic and onions, and those spots in the garden are just begging for something green. Luckily, there are several vegetables you can plant in July -- I'm thinking more beans and carrots sound pretty good!
Are you planning a fall garden this year? Or are you "gardened out" once your summer garden is going full steam?
