The 30 days of June are always filled with outdoor garden adventures because the temperature in the Northern Hemisphere is amazing and quite perfect in my opinion as a Midwest gal! It’s hard to believe we are at the end of June 2014 and I can’t help but reminisce on the wonderful things the garden has been giving to my family and me this season.
Break Out The White In June
June has brought the first day of summer and so we can officially break out the white flip flops! Does anyone follow that old fashion rule any more? It makes sense to wear white in the summer because the color keeps you cool.
It’s that time in my garden when I can wear light-colored gloves and trade in my heavy garden clogs for flip flops because the chores in the garden are not so hardcore. Simple wedding, pruning or deadheading of blooms that have passed and seeds may be direct sown.

June is the time to enjoy the bursting color as summer arrives and new blooms fill the garden. It is also the month you can direct sow more seeds to ensure our garden will continue to bloom into Autumn.
