In the Vegetable Garden

The soil and air are warm—plant tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, squash, melons and other summer crops now. After you’ve finished planting the summer crops, remember a mulch of heat-treated straw around them will reduce diseases caused by infected soil splashing up on leave as well as preserve moisture around the roots. It will last all season, can’t add weeds (heat treating kills weed seeds) and improves the soil as it breaks down next winter.
