What To Plant in August in Your Edible Garden

Hello! Hoping your summer garden is in full swing this month and the tomatoes are coming in!

Are you wondering what to plant this month in Marin County? There are still Summer crops to plant as well as some Fall favorites to get started.

Again, a few important reminders for planting in the warmer months are:

  1. Make sure your soil in your planting area and in your seedlings is moist before planting.

  2. It is best to plant early in the morning or in the evening, so it’s not in the heat of the day.

  3. Water your starts or seeds well after planting.

  4. Water your new plantings every day until they are established because the root system is small and will dry out quickly in the sun & heat.

  5. During a heat wave you can use shade cloth or patio umbrellas to give your young plants some protection.
