Weekends are the time to relax, but gardeners have completely different plans. Plant, water, treat the area from pests, and there is absolutely no time for a break. However, our simple plan will help strike a balance between working in the garden and relaxing.

What to do in the garden from May 11 to May 31

Mid-May is the best time to plant the remaining tomatoes, peppers and eggplants in the greenhouse. Also during this period, you need to water perennial plants. We are talking about rhubarb, onion and sorrel, writes Supersadovnik.

At the end of the month, heat-loving crops should be planted. This list includes zucchini and squash, cucumbers, melon, pumpkin and beans. In open ground, you can plant seedlings of tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers and gourds.

Garden care from 1 to 20 June

To get a rich harvest of potatoes, in June you need to spud its bushes. This must be done when they reach a height of 15-20 cm. In no case do not fill in the potatoes with the “head”. It is important that the crown is on the surface. At this time, you can sow Beijing cabbage for seedlings, and in July plant it in open ground.

Garden care from 21 to 30 June

Remove side shoots of tomatoes, but not completely. It is better to leave a stump about 1 cm long. This will protect you from unnecessary work, since if you break the side shoots under the “root”, new ones will grow very quickly. At the end of June, potatoes should be spudded a second time. It is better to carry out this procedure before flowering.
