In this extreme heat, it’s important to keep your gardens wet! It’s usually best to water in the early morning or late evening when it’s cooler outside. It give your plants a chance to absorb some moisture into their roots before the next heat of the day!!.
add some poo!
As your garden begins to bear, it’s good to give it a little poo!! Cow manure is the oldest and best fertilizer known to man. You can pick up a 50lb bag for under $10 at most home and garden shops.
If all is going well, you should have something to pick about now. Don’t hesitate to pick as food ripens. It makes way for new fruits and veggies. Also, pick off the dead leaves and leave them in the soil to feed back into the plant they come from!
