SUMMER LAWN AND GARDEN COLUMBUS OHIO
Summer is the perfect time to spruce up your garden with healthful vegetables, and bunches of beautiful blooms.
And there’s no better way to show them off than at a summer picnic or cookout with family and friends.
Here are some of our tried-and-true favorites to help you get the most out of your garden and backyard this summer.
Tomatoes are some of the easiest vegetables to grow in your backyard garden or container garden. There are several varieties to choose from, and they’re all great as delicious side dishes and in crispy, fresh summer salads. And, you can make your summer tomatoes last by canning them for fall and winter soups and sauces.
Peppers thrive in the heat and sun of summer. So, whether you prefer sweet, juicy bell peppers to cool things off, or the fiery jalapeno to heat things up, peppers are a great addition to your summer garden. Along with bell peppers and jalapenos, you can also try planting Thai chili peppers, banana peppers and Cayenne peppers. After all, variety is the spice of life.
