WORK SAVER TIPS

  • Drive stakes to support your cucumbers and tomatoes before you plant them. This prevents damage to the plant roots.
  • Keep weeds and grass mowed around the edge of the garden so pests don't have a place to hide and breed.
  • Visit your garden once a day to check for problems before they get out of hand.
  • Store seeds in coffee cans with plastic lids; the cans are insect- and rodent-proof.
  • Place trellis and stakes so that the plants lean against them when the prevailing wind blows.
  • Measure rainfall with a gauge posted near the garden so you'll know when to water. Gardens need about one inch of rain a week.
  • Don't spray on windy days, to avoid wasting pesticide.
  • Grow transplants in pots. Cut plastic trash bags into small squares to fit inside the pot Poke holes in the bottom of the plastic for drainage. Fill with soil and seed. When it's time to transplant just lift the plastic out
