Summer has arrived! The days are wonderfully long, the rains have returned, and the temperatures are enjoyable, yet not stifling on average. June is filled with chores that linger from spring, as well as preparations necessary for the garden to continue to thrive well into late fall. Enjoy the coolness of the early morning and evenings for those tasks requiring the most exertion, with the heat of the day reserved for watering and other light duties. Also, don’t forget to sit down with a cold ice tea to write in your journal or to photodocument your efforts, allowing you to better plan your garden of 2017 during the less hurried days of winter.
