Organic Summer Gardening To-Dos
June is the last month with cool enough mornings that allow us time to work in the yard and not die from heat exposure. Here are some things to do:
Aerate the lawn and top dress with a thin layer of compost to help feed the lawn and retain moisture
Spray all perennials, flowers, herbs and vegetables with kelp, which helps produce stronger plants, enabling them to ward off disease and absorb more water
Check plants for insects and disease. Release predator insects or treat with organic pesticides.
