July Gardening Tips

07/01/2005 - Around 4th of July -

Fertilize lawn if soil tests indicate need. No more than 1 pound of Nitrogen (N) per 1000 sq. ft. at any one time, with no more than 4 pounds in any one growing season.

Water after fertilizing.

Water, keep everything well mulched.

Mow lawn regularly leave clipping on lawn unless excessive and make sure you are mowing at a proper height with a sharp blade. If you haven't already, begin to mow you lawn a little higher than normal at least 3 inches tall.

Order bulbs for fall planting.

Enjoy the long summer nights in your yard.

Adjust irrigation time clocks.

Harvest fruits and vegetable.

Savor the first taste of that freshly picked apple or tomato. Relax in your yard/garden area, enjoying the "fruits of your labor" and all that is to come.

"July Weather Lore"

If ant hills are high in July, Winter will be snowy.

Summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.
