Fruit and vegetables from protected cultivation
Eggplants are ready to be harvested when they are not that hard anymore and the skin gives way to pressure
Only tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and aubergines come from the greenhouse in August. But beware: in midsummer, greenhouse temperatures can quickly rise above 40 degrees Celsius. Even heat-loving vegetables can get too hot at such high temperatures. Important is then a good ventilation. In addition, external shading, for example with the aid of a green shading net, lowers the temperature.
Stock goods from the cold store
The stored goods from the cold store can also be counted on one hand in August. So only potatoes and chicory are available as stock items from last season.
