Weekend Gardener: Looking ahead to fall veggie gardening

By  | 

As the temperature climbs to triple digits this summer, fall seems very far away but Jayla Fry with the Texas Agrilife Extension Project says this is the perfect time to think about fall gardening.

If you are hoping to grow vegetables this year, July is the best time to prepare your soil by mixing in compost and allowing it to break down. Some plantings like cucumbers and squash begin in the middle of July. In early August, you can plant peppers and tomatoes.
