Protect ripening figs, grapes, pomegranates and other ripening fruits from bird damage with netting, inflatable snakes or owls.
For beautiful fall color, plant Marigold Mari-Mums now. These bloom a fabulous orange or yellow throughout the fall season from Halloween through Thanksgiving.
Prune out dead, diseased, or damaged wood from trees and shrubs.
Place orders for fall from seed catalogs for best selection.
