Fruit and veg job checklist
18 - 24 August 2014
It's time to...
Harvest young marrows but leave some to fully ripen for storage and winter use
Trim leaves from strawberries that have finished fruiting
Plant out rooted strawberry runners into new beds
Pick early varieties of apple as they ripen including 'Discovery', 'Laxton's Epicure' and 'George Cave'
Sow parsley in pots for winter and spring use
Thin out heavy crops of plums to prevent branches snapping
Hang wasp traps
in fruit trees
Pinch out the tops of outdoor tomatoes, as further flowers are unlikely to produce ripe fruits
Pick fresh herbs
to freeze in ice cubes for winter use, or to hang and dry to store in jars
