Bountiful harvest: 3 popular summer vegetables to grow in a greenhouse
Summer is well underway, and the high temperatures beg for diligent crop care. If you want to ease your mind about taking good care and properly watering your summer crops, you need to create the optimum conditions by choosing the most effective drip irrigation system that is based on precision. In this way, you will produce a bountiful harvest that you can enjoy on a daily basis! Here are some tips and advice for 3 of the most popular summer vegetables: tomatoes, bell peppers, and cucumbers.
One of the best vegetables to grow in a Mediterranean climate is tomatoes. Tomatoes require a warm weather and lots of sun to grow, approximately 6-8 hours a day. Although they have a long growing season and require approximately 1-1.5 month for harvesting, it is better to plan their bumper crop by August. You have to be careful not to overwater your tomato plants. If you see cracked fruit and bumps or blisters on the leaves, then you are definitely overwatering your tomato plants and, if this continues, the roots will gradually die.
Along with your tomatoes, you can also plant bell peppers, as they share similar needs. They too require a warm, sunny weather, rich and nutritious soil, and proper water application. If you want to create the perfect environment for both your peppers and tomatoes, choose advanced non leakage drippers with a multi-channel nutrient dosing machine. In this way, you can ensure that the climate, irrigation, and fertilization of your crop is done in the best possible the manner.
Unlike tomato plants, the growth season for cucumbers is shorter. In warm climates, like our climate in Cyprus, you need less than a month from planting to harvest and another 7-8 weeks for the completion of the harvest period. For guaranteeing that the growing of your cucumbers is effective, you need to make sure that the EC, pH, and nutrient levels in the root zone are in the correct levels. For succeeding this, you should definitely choose the appropriate dripper or a precise dosing system.
