TIPS FOR SUMMER GARDENING IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Watering deeply is just as important as watering regularly. You want your plants to develop nice, deep roots to keep them from getting stressed in the heat, especially if we experience another drought.
Walk through your garden first thing in the morning to hunt out any pests, prune, and make adjustments to your watering system. Irrigation timers are a summer garden lifesaver.
Harvest any and all veggies you can find! Crops are best enjoyed when picked in the early morning, before a plant is stressed from the heat. Get them before the birds do, and remember that most tomatoes can ripen on the counter even if mostly green.
