    I live in PA and I had a question about the cicadas that are coming this year. Do they attack vegetable gardens if so, what you reccomend to prevent them?

    I love growing
    But we never eat it
    Like Cilantro I have so much of it
    Now it’s going to seed
    We had so many cherry tomatoes last year I couldn’t even give it away

    This has been the most challenging year for growing and yet after some brutal fall and spring weather, things showed off and came back like crazy on some things. If your not sure of perimters and dont want to waste a lot of seed or take up prime spots. It never hurts to devote a smsll area for experimenting with pushing the limits and finding new things out about plants and what you can do!

    I did replant new tomato plants in later summer and I ended up with a huge amount of green tomatoes come late October early November (that a pulled before frost) and let them ripen on their own or in a brown paper bag and had my last yummy tomatoes into mid December.

    Thank you for providing info for gardeners who are ‘late bloomers’ but have time to plant now. 🌱

  7. Kenneth Richie on July 2, 2021 at 1:41 am

    Yes, good to know. Thanks

  8. Janie Taylor Euell on July 2, 2021 at 1:42 am

    I’m in Georgia 7b and the fact you mentioned different veggies for warmer climates was so helpful!!

  9. Kay martin on July 2, 2021 at 1:42 am

    The information about re-amending soil after first crop was very valuable you pulled the thought right out of my head

  10. Lisa Brown on July 2, 2021 at 1:42 am

    Very interesting! Thanks Luke!

    I planted garlic in a covered raised bed (in MN), but this spring, it never came up. What did I do wrong?

  13. Trish the homesteader on July 2, 2021 at 1:44 am

    I’m glad this popped up in my feed! Great reminder! 💜

  14. AquaSeahorse Love on July 2, 2021 at 1:46 am

    Not down in Florida you can’t. Nope!

  15. Krista Modlin on July 2, 2021 at 1:47 am

    How do you amend the soil? Or how do you make sure you have nutritious soil?

  16. 2quick4 u on July 2, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Hi! Do you plant green onions in clumps of 3-4 or individually? Thanks!

  17. hope king on July 2, 2021 at 1:48 am

    Has anyone ever tryed growing a tomato plant in water.i guess some gardeners do it

  18. Xalli Gonzales on July 2, 2021 at 1:51 am

    if you’re in Texas, you can grow lettuce all year round. Just grow it indoors. There’s no reason to plant lettuce outside.

  19. Beatrice Moscozo on July 2, 2021 at 1:52 am

    😐not me convinced I couldn’t grow 🌶 in june….

  20. NotJustAnother Mother on July 2, 2021 at 1:52 am

    I’ve had trouble with snap peas in the heat. I’ll try again where they are shaded from afternoon sun

  21. Amanda M. on July 2, 2021 at 1:53 am

    I am cracking up at myself at how SHOCKED I was at the idea of doing broccoli in June. I’ve missed what I thought was my window for broccoli the last few years, and now I’m sitting here like, "……………………………..wat."

  22. HappyDays on July 2, 2021 at 1:53 am

    Carrots and beets can get wire worms and nematodes (not the beneficial type) that will damage the roots–even when it’s the first time they’ve been planted in a spot. Home gardeners still have to rotate these two veggies. I’ve learned this from sad experience.

  23. stonetop on July 2, 2021 at 1:54 am

    Watching this in the depths of winter is very uplifting.

  24. G Zuk on July 2, 2021 at 1:55 am

    We had a strange ling growing season in 2020, I was picking tomatoes into late October in 7a

  25. Jo Sanders on July 2, 2021 at 1:55 am

    I don’t like to be hollered at when you start.

  26. Elizabeth Recco on July 2, 2021 at 1:56 am

    Can you grow lettuce in the summer if it’s in the shade? Mottled shade?

  27. Betty 1966 on July 2, 2021 at 1:57 am

    Taking tomato cuttings is a great way to keep it growing also.

  28. Candy Ackley on July 2, 2021 at 1:58 am

    Great video, i had tried snap peas but I think the sun zapped them, and critters ate the rest. Will have to plant in pots on my deck

  29. Mary Archer on July 2, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Really enjoy your show!

  30. Hope Up on July 2, 2021 at 2:00 am

    Do you ever use a shade cloth for your garden when it gets really hot?

  31. camerasrawesome on July 2, 2021 at 2:01 am

    Arizona here. We have a 3-4 month lag behind you going into winter. October 22nd right now, and I am putting my lettuce seed in tomorrow at 92 degrees, Later next week are going to be in the mid 80’s during the day, mid 60’s at night

  32. Paw Power on July 2, 2021 at 2:04 am

    Love your videos

  33. Emma Forsythe on July 2, 2021 at 2:05 am

    I love starting tomatoes seeds in the summer because I can do that outside!!

  34. Wormhole Garden on July 2, 2021 at 2:06 am

    I love how your channel is all about thinking differently about growing things!

  35. GreenEyedLady on July 2, 2021 at 2:06 am

    It was in the 60s here (Oregon) less than a week ago. Then we had a couple of days in the 70s, a couple in the 80s, and now a couple in the 90s. It’s going to be back to the 60’s later this week. 🙄

  36. jammin6816 on July 2, 2021 at 2:07 am

    I just realized that plants need water (which explains my dead house plants) so it’s news to me that you can plant tomatoes and peppers in early June. 😲😬

  37. Nate Ellenberger on July 2, 2021 at 2:07 am

    I’m learning alot from Luke!! He makes gardening fun and exciting (especially when you get GREAT results for 1/4 of the price your neighbors are spending on their hobby gardens). I need to start learning how to "crop rotate" and grow all year long. I will try growing all year this year, over the fall and winter.

  38. hope king on July 2, 2021 at 2:10 am

    I planted orka and a dwarf egg plant.my orka did lovely last year. Never did egg plant b4 I got lettus going and kale

  39. Katy Williamson on July 2, 2021 at 2:10 am

    Would love more information on broccoli. What can you do with it after it bolts.

  40. J Brown on July 2, 2021 at 2:11 am

    You had me at "No Duh."

    🙏💚🤙

  41. Jesus Loving Homesteader on July 2, 2021 at 2:11 am

    I love the first 2 minutes 😂 Total Rant! 😂

  42. Anne Absolutely Noh_Bah_Dee on July 2, 2021 at 2:17 am

    My broccoli bolted this year. (Due to temp fluctuations) No harvest. Will start again, per your advice.

  43. Jay Saint on July 2, 2021 at 2:22 am

    Great video. Out of all of these, which would be safe to start here in Central FL. Everyday we are in the 90s here at the end of June.

  44. hope king on July 2, 2021 at 2:22 am

    We had 47 degree this morning and now it 85 mich is weird! You never know from year to year what is going happen!

  45. Pam Garwood on July 2, 2021 at 2:23 am

    What about keeping the spinach pruned down? Has anyone tried this? That’s what I’m trying and letting 4 plants go to seed for later.

  46. SpoonieSensei on July 2, 2021 at 2:26 am

    I have NEVER been able to grow spinach successfully in the spring. At least over the past few years, it has gone from cold to HOT so quickly that I can only get maybe a handful of leaves before the plants bolt. This year I’m going to switch things up and try it as the weather is cooling down toward the fall. *FINGERS CROSSED!* I still do not have my "green thumb" but I have what I call my "yellow thumb;" that is, I am a "master" at growing from seed, but not so great at keeping veggies growing through their "life cycles." I have been slightly more successful this year utilizing the scallion as a pest deterrent and growing carrots, PEAS (peas that have lasted this long – almost into July and very well too!), various greens, RUSSIAN KALE (I have personally found Russian Kale – I get the White Russian Kale but whatever you would like and / or can find!) which has done INCREDIBLY well / stayed incredibly resilient during these hot days, cucumbers (so far so good, *fingers crossed!*), pole beans, celery, and some edamame. I have cherry tomatoes that seem to be doing well and as I have mentioned here before I do grow lettuce and SO MUCH lettuce but that is the one crop (at least so far!) I INSIST on keeping inside – it is so wonderful to be able to cut your lettuce and not have to even think about dirt or bugs in your salad greens (oh, and I have MORE than enough to eat myself as well as send home to my parents and sister … and I STILL HAVE MORE LETTUCES THAN I CAN EAT!). Oh, I also managed to get a watermelon seed to germinate and it’s taking its time but I’m really hoping it picks up quickly now with the warmer and wetter weather!
    Sorry, long ranty comment – I am infamous for them! But yes, I have never had luck planting spinach in the spring – even when I start them early. It’s fall this year!!!

  47. Sarah Howard Joost on July 2, 2021 at 2:27 am

    You are awesome!

  48. Bobby Williams on July 2, 2021 at 2:30 am

    Great video. Perfect timing.
