July Gardening - Top Ten Growing Tips

Gardening Tip #2: Birds know just when the blueberries are getting ripe. They go after them the day before you do. Many critters know just when to harvest the crops you have lovingly cared for. Many garden pests can be kept from feasting on your garden with pest netting. Pest netting and other pest control ideas

Gardening Tip #3: Timing is crucial when planting fall and second season crops. The declining hours of sunlight, and lower temperatures, means it will take longer for your fall crops to grow and mature. Check the days to maturity on the seed packet. Add a few days to this number. Then, count back from the normal first frost in your area.  More on Succession Planting
