AUGUST TO DO LIST 

 

     •  Turn compost and keep moist. Do not use grass clippings if lawn was treated with herbicide.

     •  Prune away excess vegetation and flowers on frost tolerant vegetable crops to channel energy into         maturing remaining fruit.

     •  Harvest potatoes, onions and garlic as the tops die down; hang garlic and onion in a dry place.

     •  Do a final pruning of suckers at the base of trees.

     •  Purchase fall bulbs.
