Ah, summertime! The first day of summer is here; and gardeners are ready to start a fruit garden in the backyard. There are many fruits that can be grown in the heat and can handle hot climates. Here is a list of fruits to grow in summer:
- Blackberries and raspberries
- Tomatoes (yes, they are fruit!)
There are a number of summer veggies to grow in addition to these summer fruits. Easy and delicious!
Be sure to water plants daily in the early morning hours before the brutal heat in the afternoon and protect gardens from wildlife damage with fencing and other deer management tactics.
