Gardenining Tips

Animal pests don't like strong-smelling plants. Surround your garden with marigolds, zinnias or wormwood. To keep small animals out of your garden, cut an old hose in 3' lengths. Place the pieces randomly around the garden. These fake "snakes" will scare away small animals.

Peat moss is a good summer mulch for keeping moisture in the ground and discouraging weed growth. Now is a good time to plant a succession of vegetables. The main work in June will be fighting the bugs and weeds.
