TIDEWATER GARDENING

by K. Marc Teffeau, Ph.D.

Transitioning to Summer Activities I always have a problem with squash vine borer in the zucchini, even though I spray with an organic repellent. To compensate for some damage, I make additional plantings about 3 weeks apart. This works well if you have cole crops like broccoli in the garden. When you finish cutting the broccoli and the plants start to bolt, pull them

June is here, and there are so many gardening activities! The early peas you planted should be ready for harvest, along with greens like lettuce and spinach. At the beginning of the month you should start transitioning to warm-season crops like peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, sweet corn and squash.

Asparagus that has gone to seed in the garden is quite beautiful. 83
