39. Gardening In June
During the month of June there are a few gardening tasks that you can enjoy while you are waiting for your plants to bloom and your vegetable to continue giving your fruit. Many of these tasks will depend on what grow zone you are located in, but June is generally considered one of the first drier growing months for many grow zones, and in the greenhouse this is one of the first months where you actually have less to do because all of your plants have been sown and they are growing.
In June you can start to put away your heaters, your bubble wrap or other types of plastics that you use as additional insulation in the greenhouse. Make sure you clean the heaters well so that they do not rust over the humid summer months.
June is a good time to clean out your pots and your saucers, making sure you sterilize any containers not in use so that you kill any pests that might be living and fungus that could be been left behind.
Because June is a drier month, you may need to water your container gardens on you deck, patios and in your special gardens. The sun will start bringing out all types of flowers and your vines will be thriving.
June is a good month to check out the home stores to look for any special bargains that the spring growing season has left behind. You can also start stocking up on seeds for the winter growing months at this time.
Washing down the outside of the greenhouse could be done during this time, getting all the dirt and dust off of your glazing for the summer months to allow the sun light in clearly for any greenhouse garden you may be growing will be a good idea. You can wait until you are ready to start your winter garden to wash down the interior of the greenhouse or you can do this now if you like. Most hobby gardeners feel that once a year is plenty for a cleaning of the greenhouse panels but you can wash it down anytime you feel it is dirty.
You can place your fans in the greenhouse for July and August use to ventilate the greenhouse, and you can continue to monitor the temperatures in the greenhouse so that you know if the vents can stay open all day and night or if they still need closed in the evenings.
Tomatoes and other vegetables that you are keeping in the greenhouse will need watered and you can hook up or set up you misters now to start using, as the temperatures will start rising for the summer months. You will also need to start going through your greenhouse and pollinating your flowers if you havenít been finding any bees in your greenhouse. Donít forget to start staking up you plants in the greenhouse, as they are getting much taller now!
