Summer is right around the corner and I promised prior to spring that I’d be diving into each season to help understand and maintain your garden.

We’re weeks away from the seasons changing and it won’t be long before temperatures begin to spike.  When that happens sometimes it can feel like we’re spending more hours managing our garden than we have to give.

I have to admit I actually enjoy the warmer temperatures.  They don’t really begin to bother me until about the middle of August because that’s when I notice the impact they’re having on my garden.

However, I do appreciate by July new grass growth has slowed down and if I’ve prepped everything correctly in June then I’m not really spending as many hours working in the garden as most.

Work Smarter Theory

I have this theory to work smarter not harder but most of all, let nature work for me.

To keep up, I try to keep things as simple as possible.  That’s probably no big surprise as my focus remains to enjoy life more while doing the things I love.

So, I put together this really neat free garden planner that I think your going to really like.  It includes lots of space to jot things down but it also includes seasonal pages that are designed to guide you through summer gardening.

You’ll even find tips for Fall, Winter and Spring.

This is a 12 page resource that I’m pretty sure your going to really like. .

The Summer Page includes:

  • Includes my three simple care tips.
  • Space for creating your own maintenance
  • With emphasis on stop feeling defeated once those temperatures rise.

    I’m actually looking forward to summer gardening as well. Especially with this cold and wet spring, we’ve been having. It seems every day I’m checking the weather so I can see if I have to bring out the blankets to cover the little seedling from the cool temps at night! Oh well, it’s all in gardening I guess. But heat sounds good to me!

      The weather has been weird all over this Spring which has slowed things down here. I find these weather challenges to be an interesting and just kind of go with it.

    HI Carole, I think of you everytime I pass my herbs and my semi-frozen tomato plant (from this week’s snow in Denver).

      We lived in Colorado for three years and I remember having snow on Easter… That was when I realized it was time to get back to Texas… LOL
      Thanks for sharing and so glad you have herbs growing. They’re my favorite!

    Why is it that I get sooo excited for the garden starting as early as January but by mid-July, I’ve lost all steam. Of course, that’s exactly the time the weeds will invade, making me even less inclined to enjoy the garden. I guess you have to take the bad with the good.
    On another note, I am proud to say that my oldest daughter has just started to work on her master’s degree in plant biology. She was my little helper in the garden with watering as a kid and over the past few years has become hooked on plants. It’s so nice that we can share this interest. I don’t know if I fostered it or whether it’s genetic but I’ll take it.

      I would say abolutely fostered that interest. We forget how much our children learn just by being a part of our environment. As for summer gardening, it can be a real kicker esepcailly when August hits here because things becomes so dry and tired looking. I just try to focus on what inspires and keep my goals realistic.
