  • Weeding- keep up by checking out your gardening daily. If you wait for just the weekends, weeds can explode.
  • Harvest daily as well. By keeping your beans and cukes picked, more will come on. Vegetables taste better younger and fresher as well.
  • Plant for fall harvest- lettuces, carrots, Kale, herbs are among the vegetables that you will be able to pick late summer early fall


  • Keep the yard mowed (remember 3 to 4” high) to help keep any invading weeds at back. No need to rake up the cuttings, they become a great source of humus for the soil and nitrogen for the grass- cut only a third of the bade height at any mowing.
  • Spot weed any invading weeds with Iron-X.

Flower Beds

  • Remember to apply the second application of your natural fertilizer (such as Flowers Alive!) to help continue your plants producing flowers


  • Keep water clean, fresh and available during the hot months.
  • Contrary to popular belief, birds still could use some extra food during the summer months and feeding provides a great opportunity to see  the young birds with their parents.
