Hello Everyone,

     One of my favorite books in the Bible is Matthew. My favorite verse in Matthew is Matthew 7: 1-2. " Do not judge others and you will not be judged. For you will be treated as you treat others." I try not to judge other people and their actions. Sometimes it is really hard, but in the end that is God's job and not ours.

                           Roses

     Last week there was a mistake, Your soil Ph should be between 6.0 and 7.0

     The best time to plant roses is in February and March. Although, they can be planted any time when the roots can grow and become well established before extreme weather occurs. Good root establishment takes 2 to 4 months.

    Plant roses soon after purchasing them if possible. Early spring planting allows root time to become established. This will allow the rose to absorb plenty of water during the heat of the summer.

July 1-2

This is a very fruitful time. These days are good for planting and transplanting. It is also a good time to irrigate , bud , graft , and prepare seed beds.

July 3-4

These days are good for destroying weeds.

July 6

This is fairly productive. It is a good time to plant bulbs, biennials and perennials.

July 7

This is a good time to cultivate and kill pest.
