Farmers Market - Sedgwick County Extension Education Center

Rafting the Colorado river, hiking through Yosemite Valley, and camping under the stars in the Great Smoky Mountains. Sound fun? We thought so. Celebrate the Wild Days of Summer with The Wilderness Society

 

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.
