From the Garden
Keeping it Growing
Here are some great tips on keeping your flower and vegetable gardens in good shape:
- Allow your wildflowers to go to seed. They will produce a natural healthy feast for birds as well as reseeding themselves to come up again next year.
- The second half of April is the time to pull up your geraniums, petunias, snap dragons and plant summer flowers so the roots can establish before the tough heat arrives.
- Propagate chrysanthemums in April. Divide chrysanthemums to prevent root binding.
- Plant seeds: beans (lima & snap), black eyed peas, carrots, cucumber, jicama, melons, okra, summer squash, green onions, peanuts, radishes, scallions, green beans.
- Plant transplants: artichokes
- Place shade cloth over tomatoes to keep bugs away.
- If you haven't pruned your herb garden, now is the time to do it. For frost damaged herbs, look for new growth emerging on the lower half of the plant. Use sharp shears to cut the plant back by 1/3 to 1/2 or more, down to healthy new side shoots. Add new compost and water well.
- Fertilize producing vegetable gardens.

Rescue Mat System
Cool Stuff That Works
Presenting the Rescue Mat System, a specialized drying system used specifically for hardwood floors that have been damaged by water.
This unique system actually dries the flooring from the top down. It uses a high-pressure blower to vacuum water vapor directly through the surface of the floor. Often this system is used along with other drying equipment. Two different sizes are available, which allow the system to fit to any floor layout. The setup is fast and easy and has one hose connection per mat.
