- Replenish mulches around the trees and shrubs, and water every 3 to 5 days.
- Start cool-season vegetables such as mustard, lettuce, arugula, broccoli, carrots, and turnips, from seed in well-prepared beds.
- Harvest okra, peppers, squash, and other vegetables often to encourage production.
- Continue a disease-spray schedule on roses, as blackspot and mildew can be extremely damaging in September and October. Funginex, used every 7 to 14 days, will usually give excellent control.
