Birds – Filling bird feeders can be messy. Measure how much each feeder will hold fill several self-sealing bags, or gallon milk jugs and mark for which feeder. As a feeder needs filling use one of the pre-measured containers.

Garden

  • Remove rose blackspot foliage from the plant and surrounding soil. Spray foliage top and underneath, and replace the soil of container grown roses. Destroy foliage and soil. Start a blackspot program.
  • Divide hosta and plant in afternoon shade location. Varieties that are deep green and have a blue cast need dappled or full shade.
  • Plant marigolds, lavender and other highly scented plants to deter deer and rabbits.
  • Hummingbirds love pineapple sage’s red flowers and sweet fragrance.
