Even with a solid watering schedule, you should check the soil often to make sure your garden is getting enough water (and not too much!). It’s as simple as feeling the soil. If you can make a moist ball with the soil in the palm of your hand, it’s watered enough. If it starts to fall apart or feels cracked and hard, it will need some additional watering.
Soon the warm days will outnumber the cool ones. You’ll be able to get outdoors more often to get in the garden. You’ll need to tackle some gardening maintenance tasks and follow a lawn care schedule to keep your property in top shape.
The crisp fall season is a great time to grow a slew of vegetables and flowers, from vitamin-packed kale to striking irises.
