Now is the time of year when gardeners across the country are planting their summer crops and flowers to get the most out of the optimal growing season.
Of course, here in Southern California the growing season lasts all year, but what works in winter does not necessarily work in summer.
My own vegetable garden is in transition: The lettuce and chard I've been growing this winter is about to go to seed and is no longer yielding very much. My experience is the plants do not grow well in summer, at least in my very sunny yard.
Tomatoes, on the other hand, love to bake in the sun all day, in my experience. I've just taken some tomato volunteer starts that turned up from my kitchen compost and separated them out and caged them to prepare for the high summer yield.
For all you gardeners out there, what are you growing this summer? Upload your garden photos by clicking "add photos" under the pictures above, and tell us in the comments section what works best for you in summer time.
