It's hard to think about frost on the pumpkin when summer's just heating up. But it's time to consider these traditional fall fruits. Jack-o'-lanterns take a long time to grow.
On "Gardening in Georgia" June 29 and July 1, host Walter Reeves visits with horticulturist Terry Kelley on how and when to plant pumpkins so they'll be ready for Halloween.
Walter will check on the summer vegetable garden, too. He'll review the difference between male and female squash blossoms. And he'll explain why it's best to plant corn in a block rather than in rows.
Finally, Walter will show how to make a hood for your garden sprayer so your weed killer gets on your weeds, not on your good plants.
