Make Room for Summer Crops
Peak growing season is just weeks away, temperatures are rising, and garden stores are offering enticing choices. It's time to enjoy the last harvest from spring plantings and make room for summer crops.
Replace spent pea vines with climbing cucumber, nestle tomato plants in the ground, and sample the ripe, bright strawberries you planted a few months back. Your carrots, beets, spinach, and Swiss chard are ready for harvest, so replace them with newly sown seed.
