It’s easy to feel the cooler weather that has arrived and relax your gardening self a bit. Hold off, though, don’t sit down quite yet! There’s a lot to do out there before you can kick back. The time and effort you invest in your garden now will build soil health, plus keep the weed and pest count down so you can go into the next gardening season with your best foot forward. Not sure what to put on your to-do list? Stick around for my three-part garden series, The Fall Garden Grind!
Call it beautiful, or call it lazy – I love to let plants set seed throughout the garden beds. The unruliness of seed and flower stalks flapping to and fro reassures me that life is beautiful even when I don’t have everything buttoned up and put away. They sorta scream “Just relax, it will be what it will be!” It’s good for me to hear this, especially in July, especially in July with a non-napping, teething baby.
