This is the first real week of summer. I never thought about it before, but the real beginning of summer marks the time when planting needs to pause for a couple of months. However, I have seedlings not yet ready to plant out, and several new plants for the new front yard. As tiny plants fry fastest, I probably will try to hold the seedlings for fall planting. All new plants need to be watched carefully between water days. I noticed my new hydrangea was wilty this morning; it needs a dedicated dripper. So here we go, summer!
