“August,” it reminds me of the word “exhaust.” That’s almost how I feel nowadays when I enter the garden. Those 85° days have arrived, along with high humidity and merciless sun. The July weeds have a good toehold and seem unaffected by the lack of rain.
Thankfully, the forecast brings change. Soon, I’ll be able to stop dragging the hose around. We normally have a cool down this month, before the last bit of summer rolls in. It’s time to throw grass seed over the bare spots, do a bit of tree pruning, make and freeze some pesto, and sow the last crops of lettuce, spinach and kale.
Wow! There’s more than I thought growing on around here. What plants are you enjoying these days? Here’s a post that you’ll enjoy – a view of a UK gardener’s busy summer. The Propagator offers great advice on multiplying your garden treasures. Give this blog a look. It’s a great day to learn something new!
