Life

At the switch

Electricity had always tormented me. I didn’t understand it. And all my instincts had told me to steer clear of it, like a mean, heavy-drinking uncle.

Time to replant containers for winter interest

It’s always a dilemma this time of year. It’s time to do our fall planting and get ready for winter but … the flowerpots and beds are still looking great. In an effort to get our money’s worth out of our summer plantings, we nurse our geraniums and petunias along well into October.

Just keep telling yourself: This is late summer, it is not fall | Column

Repeat after me: September is late summer, late summer, late summer. The soil is still warm, the nights are cool and the plants are programmed to put down roots. From a horticultural perspective, this is a perfect time to plant. It’s like a mini-spring to the plants. Some rhodies actually re-bloom in late summer and many hedge plants put on another flush of growth. Even the lawn starts to grow again and look green for a change. The plants are excited about the season and you should be, too. There’s lots of great stuff to plant and lots of reasons to be optimistic. So forget any of this fall nonsense, it’s just late summer.
