 "I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer.  My bank of wild grass is majestic 
and full of music.  It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips."
-  Violette Leduc



     

July 1 marks the 182nd day of the year.  2018 is whizzing by, but July is known for it long, hot, and lazy days.  Time seems to move slower but that can be only an illusion. Fall and winter are lurking just ahead even as summer is reveling in its glory.  Early morning and late afternoon become the gardening times of choice, or is it times of necessity.  Regardless the heat, garden duties call:      
July Gardening To Do List
  • Remove faded flowers from perennials after they finish blooming. Deadheading redirects energy towards healthy roots.
  • Maintain a 3 to 4 inch mulch layer around trees and shrubs to protect them from mower and weed whacker damage.
  • Check plants regularly for insect problems; hand pick or use suitable control measures if found
  • Fertilize warm-season grasses                 
  • Plant butterfly nectar and larval food plants such as asclepias, buddleia, and passionflower
  • Replace spent annuals with heat-tolerant lantana, verbena, pentas, and hibiscus
  • Consider drip irrigation and/or soaker hoses as efficient watering alternatives
  • Harvest raspberries and blackberries daily to avoid attracting insects to overripe fruit
  • Prune water sprouts from apple trees
  • Water flowerbeds and vegetable gardens deeply.This encourages a deep root system
