Garden Calendar – 2nd Week of August

1.  Clean up the gardens and the rest of the property in preparation for our annual “Tomato Lover’s Dinner”.

2.  Prune excess leaves off of the tomato plants to expose more fruit to the sun to speed up ripening.  Also, prune off any diseased leaves.

3.  Harvest storage onions and set out for drying.

4.  Go over menu for the dinner to ensure that Catherine and I are in sync.

5.  Check the peach trees daily for ripening fruit.

6.  Polish my presentation for the tomato tasting portion of the dinner.
