Summer is an excellent time to tend to your garden. Whether you’ve been gardening for years or are just starting out, there are a few must-dos that will make sure your garden blooms and bears fruit all summer long. Let’s take a look at some of the tasks that can help you get the most out of your summer garden this year. 
Watering & Weeding 
The two most important things you can do for your garden in the summer are water and weed, both of which should be done regularly. Watering is essential for keeping plants alive and healthy, especially during the hot summer months. Make sure to check soil moisture levels before watering, as overwatering can be just as damaging as not watering enough. As for weeding, it goes without saying that these pesky plants need to be removed from your garden or else they will choke out other plants and steal nutrients from them. 
Check Canning Jars & Freezer Supplies 
If you plan on preserving any of your harvest, make sure you have enough jars and lids on hand. Check each one for cracks or chips and replace if needed. While you’re at it, go ahead and check freezer supplies like plastic bags or containers so you can freeze any harvests that won’t fit into jars, or you don’t want to can. 
Harvest & Plant Early Crops 
Now is the perfect time to get started harvesting some of those short season crops like lettuce, radishes, kale and spinach - these will be ready before the heat of summer kicks in. You should also think about starting any fall seedlings like broccoli and cauliflower now too - these will take a bit longer, but they will be worth it come harvest time!  Plant Fall Crops Mid-Summer, once midsummer rolls around (around July), it’s time to start planting those fall crops like broccoli - you want them planted early enough so that they have plenty of time to mature before frost hits!  
Summer is a great time of year to tend to your garden! With just a few simple steps—like watering and weeding regularly, checking canning jars and freezer supplies for preserving harvests, and starting fall seedlings—you can ensure that your garden provides plenty of fresh produce all summer long. So don't wait another minute; get out there and get gardening!
