if you’ve had a bumper crop in your vegetable garden, you can show them off and compete this Saturday at the PHS Fall Garden Festival.
Well that took long enough. Finally, we grew a tomato or two!
It’s time to get your fall vegetables in the ground – or into raised beds or just great big pots, which are what I use.
Seed packets are so small and light it’s easy to get carried away; but if you’re looking to plant some this spring, remember, you don’t need very many.
Even though fall has arrived, all is not lost in your garden. Plants that hate the heat and thrive in the cooler seasons are happy to be back in your garden – and on your table once again – come September.
Tomatoes need sun to grow, that much we know, at least 6 hours of sun a day or so. But too much sun and heat can also be bad for them.
When life gives you tomatoes – make Bloody Mary’s! If you have more tomatoes than you can eat right now, drink them instead!
Dylan DeVlieger, a painting major at the Tyler School of Art at Temple University wanted to grow his own vegetables, but wasn’t able to get a community garden started near his Philadelphia apartment, so he created mobile garden carts instead.
I don’t grow tons of food and none of it in the ground but rather, in big planters to put it at easy reach for me, yet further from the bunnies.
