Garden The Easy Way ( To Save Your Garden From The Hot Sun And Heat )

              Good  afternoon to you all, this is June 28 Thursday afternoon, but the way the weather feels you would think it is August 28, it is so hot and dry here, no rain for over 2 weeks. We would like to welcome you all back here today on Garden The Easy Way.      

              Today we have something very important to share with you all on how to save your garden from the hot sun and heat.  

               "WOW" ! very hot here today, 101 new record temperature here in Rogersville, Mo. As most of you know so many people lose their garden due to the hot summer heat every year, well we have some good news you can save your garden with just a little work, and a few things to do, and what not to do. I have been gardening for over 40 years and I can help you.

1. Build a frame out of 8-ft boards 1x4 wood, and hang up a tarp on one side to keep the hot sun off your garden in the hot afternoon.  

2.  After the weather gets over 85 degrees ( NEVER ) water your garden in the morning or during the day. I know lots of gardening books would tell you watering in the morning is best, but after the weather gets over 85 degrees stop watering your garden in the morning. If you do water in the morning or during the day, you could kill your garden. Always after the temperature get to 85 degrees or more water your garden 1 hour after sun down.
