Tip #2: Start Your Fall Edibles

Even though it’s still hot outside, gardeners advise that it’s the perfect time to start planting your fall edibles, like broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts. You’ll enjoy these veggies by Thanksgiving.

Tip #3: Dig Up and Divide Perennials

Pass along some perennials and plants you’ve planted during spring and summer to your friends or neighbors. You could plant them in another area of your yard.

Tip #4: Keep Pests Under Control

One of the challenges of growing fruits and veggies is insects and pests that enjoy these fresh fruits and veggies. If you notice a dead section of your fruits or veggies, cut it and throw it away. Avoid using it as compost since you’re not sure if there are insect or pests eggs.
