JUNE

  •  It's a gardener's rule of thumb to plant your pumpkin seeds near the 4th of July for your Halloween jack-o-lanterns.
  • Keep all flower beds and vegetable gardens mulched to increase microorganizm activity in the soil and to keep tender plants from becoming dehydrated in this thick Texas heat. 
  • To combat pesky mosquitos, go around the yard and empty any standing water...even from the tinest nooks and crannies.  It only takes 24-48 hours for a mosquito to procreate in a small amount of standing water.  In areas such as birdbaths, use lemon slices or natural mosquito rings to control mosquitos without harming other wildlife.

AUGUST

  • Plant fall-flowering bulbs, annuals and perennials such as marigolds, zinnias, celosias, and fall asters.
  • Prepare for and plant fall vegetable gardens.  Plant beans and squash in early August, cucumbers, broccoli, cabbage and cauliflower mid-month and leafy crops in late August-early September. 
  • Dust diatomaceous earth (such as SoilMender or DiaSource) for natural pest control.   It helps with fire ants, chinch bugs, fleas and more.  For additional flea defense for your pets, sprinkle diatomaceous earth on their food or apply directly to the coat.
