AUGUST

Look at the Rains

Here come the rains!!! Historically that is.  High humidity and monsoon like rains pound succulents.  Be careful they don't get to much of a good thing.  Check the sprinkler timers to make sure the correct water level for these wet times.

Try to harvest as much water for the lean water months ahead.  Nows the time for tree and shrub planting.  Keep in mind future water restrictions and plant drought tolerant plants.  Be sure to ready your rain harvesting buckets.

For crops plant bean, cowpeas, gourds and amaranth.  Indoor start fall crops seedling like cabbage cauliflower and broccoli.
