What to do Now!

what to do now

Be on the lookout for flea beetle damage on tomatoes, peppers, eggplants.  If found, treat with a recommended organic insecticide.

Sow crops of broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower now for harvest later this fall.

Early tomatoes are beginning to ripen in home vegetable gardens; harvest regularly.

Avoid overhead irrigation on roses; water at ground level to keep diseases like Black Spot or Powdery mildew at bay.

Continue to liquid feed all annuals in planters, hanging baskets, and landscape beds and borders. Use a blossom booster when you do; read and follow all label directions.

Birds, just like plants, can use a cool drink. Consider adding a birdbath to your garden/landscape.
