August tips: From planting grass to eliminating creeping Charlie

Email

• For best flavor and texture, pick and use zucchini, cucumbers and snap beans when they are young.  Check your garden daily for optimal size.

  The best time to plant grass seed is mid-August through mid-September.  Scratch the surface to be planted with a rake to ensure good seed-to-soil contact.  Use starter fertilizer and water regularly but lightly until the grass is established.  Do not use weed killers until next year when the new grass has had time to toughen up.
