July Gardening Checklist

1. Freshen Up Container Gardens

We grow a fresh crop of colorful annuals just for summertime, perfect for replacing a few plants from spring container gardens as needed.

2. Harvest Vegetables

Enjoy the harvest and try new recipes! If you didn’t have the time or space to grow your own food this season, stop by our pick-your-own vegetable field on a Saturday between July 16 – August  27, from 11-2pm.
