3 Things to Absolutely Love About Gardening in June

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.

Guarantee Color by Planting Seeds in June

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.

  1. I do love the lushness and the colors of the garden in June, I will miss it as we start to slip into July. I have tried harder to hold onto it this year, I have spent more time on the porch sitting in the swing and listening to summer.

  3. Great read Bren! For so many years I planned fixing our backyard. I just can’t find time. I just miss relaxing on my parents’ garden when I was young. I want my children to have that experience too.
