The leaves are falling

The summer has come to a close and fall is officially here. Now is a great time to start pulling up any dead or dying plants, harvesting the last of your summer crops and preparing to put you garden bed to sleep. If you’re planning to grow over the winter, this would be your last chance to get you fall/winter crops in the ground.

Planning your watering schedule

Planning your watering schedule

Choosing the time of day to water your plants is a important factor to consider. In the morning is seen as best practice, in the evening is also good, however you open yourself up to the likely hood of unwanted mildew and funguses. Midday watering is a frowned upon practice, as you can scald the leaves and potentially kill you plants. Watering your plants inconsistently or not all will leave you an unhappy gardener and even worse your plants will suffer.

Hoses Are Now Hooked Up!

Hoses Are Now Hooked Up!

Water to the two hoses is controlled by the ON/OFF switch on the side of the cedar garden shed. Please make sure to turn the water OFF when you're done; this helps minimize the risk of flooding the site if there happens to be a leak in one of the lines. There's no need to coil up the hose when you're done either. Simply hook the nozzle over the edge of your box and leave it for the next gardener to find.
