|FROM WILMA: Late July and most of August have some of the hottest and muggiest days of the year. The plus side is this is when summer veggies and fruits are in season. Sarah and I made jam from delicious freestone peaches. We have our eyes on blackberries beginning to ripen and hope to have enough for jelly - the birds are watching, too.|
Bill and I had a yummy vegetable dinner last night. Some of the veggies came from my small garden, corn and green beans were from a local farmer’s market, and Dave gave me some tomatoes he had grown.
Dave recently visited his son, Cody, who is working in Northern California. They drove up to the Town of Weaverville, California which is about the same size as Weaverville, North Carolina. They arrived on a Wednesday afternoon and visited a tailgate market similar to our Weaverville Tailgate Market - also held on Wednesday afternoons.
Enjoy the season, eat your vegetables, and drink plenty of water!

- Fill in bare spots with colorful annual flowers.
- Are your petunias pooped out? Petunias are heavy feeders. Cut them back and fertilize them. You will see fresh flowers within 2-3 weeks.
- Fertilize most annuals regularly to keep them happy and continuing to flower.
- Deadhead annual and perennial flowers to promote continued flowering.
- Hanging baskets and porch pots may need to be watered twice daily during hot summer weather.
- Harvest veggies daily while they are young, tender, and at their peak flavor.
- Harvest potatoes when the vines die. You can check for “new potatoes” once the plants are flowering.
- You still have time to plant a second crop of squash, bush beans and cucumbers.
- Start planning your fall garden – it is almost time to plant.
- It is always a good time to improve your soil. Soil that is full of organic matter will be more drought tolerant and will provide better drainage in the plant’s root zone. Soil improvement is an ongoing process.
- It is beneficial to prune water sprouts from fruit trees before August.
- Set your lawn mower at 3” to prevent weeds and drought stress.
- Weed-eaters can damage and kill trees and shrubs when whipped too closely.
