Strolling my garden this morning with coffee cup in hand.
Assessing and appreciating how things look in June.
June is a beautiful month in Texas.
It's hot now, it was 94 yesterday, and we've had plenty of rain so all the plants are thriving.
There are chores with all things you love.
What to do this month in the garden? We live in gardening zone 8A and knowing that little tidbit helps me determine what's important right now. This month we fertilize, dead head, continue planting annuals and perennials. We can also plant grass, trees, and bushes with care.
Mulch, mulch, mulch if you live where water is hard to come by.
Mulch reduces moisture loss and weeds. I think mulch looks good too.
If you are a pond owner, watch out for algae growth.
Our pond is one month old and the algae is already taking over. Ugh!
I love to walk around sprinkling plants with Miracle-Gro and water.
This combo is easy for me and it works.
Remember, there's not one answer for everyone...you need some awareness of where you live.
Is your yard shady or sunny? Do you live in a microclimate? Is it a drought year?
Gardening is really so easy if you just pay attention. :)
