Growing Bumper Harvests in August

August is a time of peak production in the kitchen garden, with fruit and vegetable harvests coming in thick and fast. Here are some tips to help you make the most of the season:


  • Keep your tomatoes healthy by watering them regularly and fertilizing them every few weeks.
  • Harvest tomatoes when they are fully ripe and red.
  • Avoid blossom end rot and split fruit by providing your tomatoes with adequate calcium.


  • To avoid carrot fly damage, harvest your carrots when they are young and tender.
  • Store carrots in a cool, dark place to keep them fresh.


  • Harvest potatoes when the tops of the plants start to turn yellow and die back.
  • Cure potatoes before storing them to help them last longer.

Protecting Grapes

  • Protect your grapes from birds and wasps by covering them with netting.
  • You can also use organic methods, such as spraying the grapes with a mixture of water and vinegar.

Other August Gardening Tips

  • Compost and mulch your garden regularly to improve soil fertility and moisture retention.
  • Water your plants deeply and regularly, especially during hot, dry weather.
  • Keep an eye out for garden pests and diseases, and take steps to control them organically.
