With this heat it is hard to believe that cooler weather is around the corner. Late August and early September we will start planting leafy greens. This means harvesting onions and garlic to make space for your leafy greens. Leave the garlic out in the sun for about 1 week until the neck is dry. Store in a dark, cool, dry place (like the pantry). Watch my video for more details.
Also continue to harvest any beets and carrots that are ready. You can then fill in any empty spots in your garden with spinach, lettuce, arugula, asian green or plant some radish from seed. We have already started leafy green in our greenhouse and they will be available for sale in our store. These crops do best with some cooler weather and are quick harvest crops.
For those Urban Seedling replant gardens that we will be visiting, we will be in touch 3 days in advance with instructions on how to prepare your garden for your fall planting.
Nematodes are still on sale for a limited time. Nematodes can help you get rid of those Japanese beetles in your yard. Reserve your nematodes by replying this email. You can pick them up at our garden centre or they can be shipped to you for a small fee.
At this time of year I like to prepare grated beets salads. A creative and easy way to eat beets! Check out this delicious quinoa and beet salad recipe. I also like to make this classic cucumber recipe, easy to make and even better the next day after the cucumbers have marinated.
