How to Make a Summer Garden

Posted by Alan Bernau Jr on Fri, Jun 14, 2013

Hi, everyone! It's that time of year again to start a summer garden.  Many of you may have already planted your garden.  There are many different types of plant flowers as well as a summer vegetables you can put in the garden so the whole family can enjoy tomatoes, snap beans, cucumbers, and squash throughout the season. If you've never tried to plant a summer garden, I certainly recommend it. Working in the garden relieves stress and allows for some time alone for thoughts.  Another good thing a garden can do if you have children you can teach them a lot about life by using the garden as the teacher.  For example you plant the seed and water and wait and water some more than in the fall you reap the harvest.  This is just like it is in life.  Many things in life take time to yield fruit. Plus, you can save some money on the weekly grocery bill if you can grow some of your own vegetables. I'd like to share some of the details of gardening activities with you and pass along a few summer gardening tips as well.

Summer Garden Plants

You may want to pay a visit to the local farmer's market to check out the flowers and vegetables they have to offer.  Think about supporting the local farmers by considering their selection of flowers and plants before you go anywhere else. Many of them have some really appealing flowers including a gathering of sunflowers, daisies, and several containers of petunias in pink, red, purple, and white. In my search for summer gardening tips I found out that all of these plants need full sun in order to flourish. Make sure to clear the weeds out of a small area in the backyard, loosened the soil with a gardening fork, and then plant the petunias as well as the daisies. They will need plenty of water.

Amish built storage sheds

A good idea is to have a small storage shed in the middle of your backyard as a place to keep all of the gardening equipment.  Alan's Factory Outlet garden sheds are custom built in the size, style and painted to match your home.  They are made by the Amish and delivered fully assembled to your backyard.  If you don't have enough room to get a shed delivered we also have diy shed kits available.  You may even decide to decorate around the storage shed by planting sunflowers around it. First, put a layer of mulch down then do the planting work. Plant each flower an inch deep and space them six inches apart. A storage shed will give the sunflowers protection from any strong winds that crop up. It is never to late to make a backyard come to life.  A building in your backyard could be just want you need as a focal point to build around.

A Summer Vegetable Garden

For a summer vegetable garden chose a small area of ground. Once again, start by weeding then loosened the soil. After planting cucumbers, squash, snap beans, and tomatoes, make sure to give the new garden a generous amount of water. That's another one of the helpful summer gardening tips I learned. As long as it rains regularly, all of your plants should get an adequate amount of water. If you have a lot of different vegetables in your summertime garden, you can make labels for each type of vegetable. Attach each label to a short wooden post and stick it in the ground. That way, you'll be able to identify where each vegetable is in your garden. Within a couple of weeks you can already see little green tomatoes beginning to develop. You'll be so excited to see the late summer gardening efforts pay off.

Here is a website that can help you with your late summer gardening activities. Good luck! -Alan
