Early July Garden Checklist

by Throwback at Trapper Creek

Early July in the garden is certainly when I think I suffer from TMG (too much garden.) Everywhere I look I see something that needs doing right now. Instead of putting out fires I try to methodically work my way through the list and the garden chores.

My garden checklist:

Weed - this slows down by late July.

Hill potatoes.

Thin root vegetables.

Harvest garlic scapes.

Side dress heavy feeding crops like corn, brassicas and squash.

Continue trellising tomatoes.

Secure pepper plants to stakes.

Continue seeding succession crops.

Start transplanting first winter crops.

Seed fall and winter crops.

That's what I am up to in my garden, what's on your July garden checklist?
