Starting a garden in July: what to plant and how

think-local-food-100wIt’s July. It’s hot (finally). And fresh, local food is once again becoming bountiful.

Farmers markets, CSA’s and Upicks food is everywhere; not to mention the closest access point of all, your own garden. Which, for most of you, I’m sure are well on their way to being a wildly productive food factory. But maybe some of you, are a little slow off the mark. Maybe some of you are like me, and find yourselves in the first week of July  eyeing the neighbours garden, thinking, “wouldn’t it be nice to have one of those for myself?”. Or jealous of their neighbours crop of fresh salad greens, Or maybe you’ve just moved into a new house and find yourself playing garden catch-up.

“Oh well, maybe next year..”, some might think…BUT wait! You don’t have to wait ‘till next year. You can still plant a garden NOW.
