Happy Fake Friday and Happy Birthday America! The three day weekend provides lots of time for celebrating, cookouts and, of course, gardening. Here are some things to do in July. The summer drought is here. Water in the morning and water deep. Just wetting the soil is not enough. Water needs to soak deep to encourage deep root growth. Spot treat broadleaf weeds (i.e. clover, dandelion, plantain) in your lawn.
