Planting & Harvesting Warm Weather Vegetables (2 videos)

  • 1 of 2

Now that the weather is warm it may be too late to plant some vegetables, but it is a great time for warmth-loving vegetables. And your nursery may be selling them at half price this late into the planting season.

This video shows the Garden Girl planting a variety of potted vegetables suited particularly to Italian cooking: tomatoes, peppers, basil, oregano in her raised beds.

She has some useful tips. For example, when you take a plant out of its nursery pot, break off some of the bottom roots. When they grow back you’ll have twice as many roots.

In the next video, on page 2, the Garden Girl gives you harvesting tips.

Such lovely comments by everyone. I have lots of tomato flowers but no fruit yet and today I put oyster shells in the soil. It's coolish here so I hope it's warm enough for my tomatoes to fruit. I read somewhere that you get flower-end rot if the soil doesn't have enough calcium. My herbs are doing wonderfully and the two sprouting potatoes we stuck in the ground have made huge plants! Lol. Good old potatoes :o)) First veggie garden for me and I'm having so much fun. Next year it's going to be a bucket garden since I have no space to speak of. Good luck to everyone growing their own food this year!
