Fill in the veggie garden for summer. Switch over to planting heat-tolerant lettuce varieties in the vegetable garden, and continue adding to your summer vegetables if space allows.

Tend the strawberry patch. Check your strawberry patch frequently for slugs, snails, and earwigs. Fertilize now for healthy plants and continued berry production.
