Yes, things are really heating up out there! It wasn't that long ago we were all saying "I can't wait for summer."
The past two weeks have been a testament to typical summer weather. Hot, humid, sticky temperatures and sporadic thunderstorms. I'm sure you all have been feeling like you are melting when you step outside so remember to stay hydrated.
Speaking of hydration, all those lovely plants you may have purchased for your garden or for your containers need plenty of hydration as well. Dont let them fry up. There is still plenty of summer left for pool parties, and bbq's with family and friends for you to enjoy their beauty.
Don't have an irriragtion system? It's simple to install a drip system. Feeling "green?" Purchase a rain barrell to capture the rain water from your downspouts. And if you are hand watering, be sure to do it in the morning or at dusk. Never water during the heat of day, as most of it will evaporate.
See you in the garden!
