Growing and Harvesting Tips

• As melons come in, place a board beneath them and the ground to keep them off the moist soil and to prevent insects from attacking.
• Beans have the best flavor if you harvest them in the morning.
• Are your tomatoes setting fruit? If it's over 90 degrees F, tomatoes don't do well; try shading them to reduce the heat.
• Keep plants moist but do not overwater (even in dry climates). Water slowly and deeply; let soil dry between watering. Wilted leaves in the morning is a sign of too little water.
• When you pull carrots, cut off the green tops; if left on, they will make the carrots limp.
