August Gardening Tips

Tip #1: Now is the time to prepare for fall vegetable gardens. Remove the previous crop residue and any weed growth. Prepare the soil by tilling or spading to a depth of at least 6 to 8 inches. Thoroughly incorporate any fertilizer or compost. 

TIP 2: Strawberries should be thinned before fall. Remove all dead or diseased fruit and all but two or three runners from your main plants to promote abundant and large fruits. Fall is a great time to plant strawberries.
