Home & Garden

It’s time to make a to-do list for next year’s garden

There’s not much to be done in our gardens in late July. It’s too hot outside to plant or fertilize or amend the soil. Do plan on making a weekly check of the irrigation systems, making repairs and adjusting timers if necessary-harvesting regularly and cleaning up fallen fruits and vegetables-and monitoring for pest insects, including the fairly recent stinkbug arrivals, the Bagrada bug and the leaffooted bug, both of which suck the juices out of ripe fruits. (Check on the UC Davis website, http://www.ipm.ucdavis.edu for photos of the stinkbugs and their damage).
