OUTSIDE: Summer

Summer Reading (and Doing)

Preserve summer's bounty to enjoy during the cold months by canning. Check out Marisa McClellan's food in jars for some really delicious recipes.

Favorite Summer Gardening Tool:

The Weed Puller

The "V-ed" end of this tool centers around the weed you're pulling, and the long shaft gives you more torque to pull out deep, stubborn roots, including dandelions.

Summer Conservation Tip:

Use a rain barrel to collect runoff water from a down spout for garden watering. You can build a DIY with supplies from the hardware store, or you can get fancy and order decorative ones, even off of Amazon.

For the Bees

Honey Bees are suffering from Colony Collapse Disorder as a result of unsustainable practices by humans and overuse of pesticides. Honey Bees need to maintain a certain number population in order to survive, and they need all the help they can get right now. Plant drought-tolerant, flowering plants like lavender, echinacea, speedwell, geraniums, coreopsis, dianthus, black-eyed susans, delosperma, dicentra, salvia, columbine, day lilies, phlox, borage, or yarrow, to name a few ideas.
