Flower Power Garden Hour

Aug 12, 2023

It is the August To Do List, and we are having a gorgeous summer that is offering up IDEAL garden conditions.  Vegetable and fruit harvests are bountiful, but there is prep work for fall piling up. 

It is time to:  Plant seeds in ground, including:  beets, cabbage, carrots, turnips, potatoes

Prep garden beds for Fall planting in September:  Weed, compost

Chores include:

  •        Dead-head flowers
  •        Pick up fallen fruit
  •        Cut off suckers
  •        Prevent weeds from going to seed
  •        Collect seeds
  •        Harvest melons
  •        Order fall bulbs (daffodils, tulips, etc)
  •        Deep water trees


We finish up with a Listener Q&A section.  Topics covered include:

  •        Are pill bugs good for the soil? 
  •        Do I need to keep “braiding” my plant?
  •        Habanero not blooming – why?
  •        Fig tree only produce dry, inedible figs.  Why?
