  • Reseed dill and cilantro every few weeks for continuous harvest and to attract beneficials with blooms.
  • Sow autumn peas; presoak seeds for a faster start.
  • Harvest summer squash and cukes while they're still young and tender.
  • Start seeds of Shasta daisies in a coldframe, where they'll overwinter until large enough to plant next spring.
  • Harvest vegetables and flowers in the cool of the morning.
  • Shear back tired-looking impatiens and petunias by half, then boost their regrowth by feeding with fish emulsion.
