Get it Growing: Your August Gardens

It’s time to start planning your fall vegetable garden. Transplant fall tomato plants into your garden by mid-August for North Louisiana and the first week of September for South Louisiana. Some suggested cultivars for fall production are Florida 91, Phoenix, Sun Leaper, Solar Set, Sunmaster and Talladega. Fall seeds of broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collard greens, cucumber, kale, lettuces, lima beans, Swiss chard, Southern peas, shallots, squashes and turnips can be planted later this month.

Perform maintenance in the summer vegetable garden. Remove spent summer tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, etc. that have tuckered out. If your spring-planted eggplant, pepper plants and okra still look good let them continue to grow. They often produce another fall crop.
