Brooke (@seedtoplate) shared the gardening tips with her TikTok followers.

“While most people just get all their tomatoes and peppers and their summer harvest is really bountiful, I’m done with most of those things,” she said.

“Here are five things to plant in your yard if you live in a really hot zone.”

She presented her two full beds full of catch crops such as sorghum, buckwheat, amaranth and sunflowers.

“All of these things are really good for your soil if you chop and drop them, and the sunflowers will actually break up my hard clay soil,” she explained.

Where her tomatoes used to be, she planted okra.

“Okra is also a heat-loving, drought-tolerant plant that loves summer,” she explained.

She’s also planted sweet potatoes, which also love the heat and don’t need a lot of water.

Last but not least, it was melons, which love water but also cope well in extreme heat.

People used the comments to share their thoughts on their tips.

Some asked for advice on their own beds: “Are you fertilizing your melons? I’m growing honeydew for the first time this year, any advice would be greatly appreciated,” asked one commenter.

“Yes! Something as general as Sustane works great!” she recommended.
