Welcome back to Tuesdays in the Garden! August can become a tricky time for gardeners. It’s easy to fall into the late summer slump, feeling unsure of what to do next other than weed and wait. Things like garden pests and intruders can really get you down. Losings plants to disease or even severe weather can start to make you feel frustrated. Then, those dreaded feelings of failure creep in. You start to realize how long it will be until next summer when you can start all over again. It can be hard to see past all of your crops that flopped and enjoy everything you accomplished during the season. The good news is August is the perfect time to renovate and reinvigorate! All you need is some seeds, a shovel and a little motivation! You just have to remind yourself that there are a bunch of crops that love cool weather, and actually do better in it! I’m inspired, and want to remind you that it’s not to late to get out there and continue to grow!
