The Vegetable Garden in August is full of veg in their prime.
Pick off unhealthy leaves
The vegetable garden should be inspected regularly for pests and disease. Any badly infected or diseased leaves should be removed. Do not put them on the compost heap, remove them completely from the vegetable garden so that the pest or disease does not spread.
Beans, tomatoes, peppers, and chili’s can be staked to keep the fruit off the ground and prevent fruit rot. When the vegetable plants are standing up the air can circulate around them, preventing the muggy conditions that allow fungal diseases to develop.
Water vegetables when necessary
- Make sure vegetables in the garden have enough water
- Water vegetables at soil level, rather than wetting the leaves which can encourage leaf disease.
Sow vegetable seed
- Perpetual spinach
- Salad Leaves
- Onion Hi Keeper
- Onion White Lisbon Winter Hardy Spring Onions
August is a busy tim in the vegetable garden
