Richard Hentschel discusses the vegetable garden out in the yard. To be sure the garden continues to produce by harvesting regularly to encourage more flowers and fruit production. Even if a fruit is unusable, remove and compost so the vegetable plant knows to continue production. Once fruit set has happened, consider side dresseing or using a compost to give the plants a bit of a boost. Lots of vegetables will produce well into the fall, long after school starts, the time homeowners think the gardening season is done.
