Welcome summer after this unruly spring. Don’t you love what nature’s path has brought us today? There’s sunshine and warmer temps on the way with hints of vacations and outdoor adventures tugging us away...from all our endless garden chores.
So before you scamper and play in the dog days of summer; make sure you protect your garden and what you’ve planted to date. Here’s a post from the archives with some tips for the best way to maintain your garden while you’re off enjoying your summer ventures of sun and play.
Remember, if what you planted is anything like Ben, (feet in the water is a constant for him) best to make sure the watering is under control for those unexpected dry days or while you’re away. But as you can tell from the archived post, containers and newly planted material require extra special attention. And don’t rule out the vegetable patch. You’ll want someone to keep an eye out for more than just watering but unwanted critters and disease that can also take out your crops.
So what’s with this big summer splash? It can’t be stressed enough that water is vital but think smart and be water-wise. Don’t overdo anything, give it just enough.
As Vicki Baum pointed out, “There are shortcuts to happiness and dancing is one of them.” But don’t take any shortcuts on maintaining your summer garden. Return to a happy landscape by keeping it healthy and watered. Always pay attention to what nature’s path brings you.
