It’s not too late to plant grass seed. It’s best to plant in the fall–the break from weeds gives the seeds a chance to grow, but you can still plant now for a healthy lawn!

This week is going to be a wet one! Your garden might be a little too muddy to dig in right now, but if you’ve been planting already enjoy a week off from watering! If you haven’t been planting, once the rain stops, we will see some nice soft earth for tilling and digging.
