Summer Squash is a fun and rewarding plant for beginner gardeners. Even if you don't have a yard, potted plants can climb up the railing of balconies and yield produce all summer long! #summersquash #zucchini #gardening #urbangardening

It's time to start some seeds for a fall harvest! Start them inside to protect them from the summer heat. Here are some examples of seeds to start inside for fall: broccoli, cabbage, chard, kale, cauliflower, beets, carrots and spinach. #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Leave your tomatoes on the vine as long as possible. Pick them when they are ripe and you want to eat them. If any fall off before they appear ripe, place them in a paper bag and store them in a cool, dark place. #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Want to make sure your soil stays healthy for next year? Growing cover crops during the fall or winter helps keep your soil happy and healthy. Some good cover crops are annual ryegrass, crimson clover, White Dutch Clover and fava beans (fun with the kids!) #Growthis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Harvest! Harvest Harvest! Keep up with your harvesting. Many plants, like zucchini, will keep making more food if you keep harvesting. #Growthis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Start seeding some carrots now and keep planting them every two weeks until early fall. This is called succession planting. It will provide you with a carrot harvest throughout the fall season! Carrots tend to taste sweeter after a couple of frosts, so try them out as a fall crop. #GrowThis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

Do you have extra seeds from this year? Not sure what to do with them? Try seed saving! #GrowThis #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips #seedsaving

When the leaves start to fall, use them to cover your garden beds or container soil. #Growthis! #gardening #growathome #gardeningtips

A special part of gardening is being able to share any extra harvest with family, friends and neighbors! Search Food Hero using the Ingredients tab to find recipes you can share using foods from your garden! #GrowThis
