I will be shooting several videos this weekend. One will demonstrate how to prune and manage a young tomato. This will include creating a disease barrier. I will be showing you how to tend your 12 inch potato plants by adding soil, compost, or hay to 1/2 the stalks. And a video on container peas.
I shut down my grow-lights and everything is outside. I'll be writing about creating transplants as a way to manage your summer garden and maximize space and production. Please let me know if you have questions or would like to see certain gardening subjects covered. If I don't know how to do it... I will make up something fun.
Other cool weather crops in pictures below. Oh... In Maryland, we have about 4 weeks left of what would be considered cool weather. Enough time for some baby lettuce, spinach and radishes.

|Cool Weather - Container Peas: Gary Pilarchik|
The peas that are huge are sugar snap edible pod. The little bunch are standard peas. And that is my last wave of tomatoes that are for my garden and for sale.
|Cool Weather - Carrots, Beets and Celery - Gary Pilarchik|
I wouldn't classify these as 100% cool weather but they need some cool weather growing time. This is my first time growing celery and that is because I stumbled upon it in seed cells. I figured what the heck. The celery had to be protected when frost was around.
