Earlier, I had complained that August would not be worthy of respect. In fact, it could be a tragic month.
Heat and moisture take us inside. There is no holiday to separate. Rest ends. School starts late in the month, usually on very hot days.
But August is a big month in the garden. Tomatoes are ripe. Sweet corn is ready. Beans, pumpkins, and summer pumpkins abound, and the flowers are beautiful in August.
Last spring, when I visited Pat and Stan Podhajsky’s farms in northern Liberty, thousands of daffodils were planted.
This week their yard is full of naked women. Hundreds of these mysterious flowers appeared in one night. Long stems without leaves and clusters of flowers on it gave it this name, but they belong to the Lily family and are called Belladona Lily, Amazing Lily and Resurrection Lily.
In August, it is best to plant them in the spring and plant more together. The bulbs are large, so the holes are 2½ times larger than the knee, probably a deeper hole than Daphne.
Note: Another August-18 full-size doors will be installed in a garden near Rochester Avenue in Iowa, in the city of Iowa.
Gardening is very popular now, but this may be the best you have seen all year round.
On Friday, August 20, from 5:30 pm, you can see these doors in the garden behind Rochester Street and the White House near the corner of Scott Bolevard. Turn on the harvest path. Home and John Bessley and members of their gardening team will be your hosts.
The doors are painted by local organizations such as Unity for Youth, but many individuals from this area are also painted. I plan to build a column after the event and hope to get a picture of all the doors, in all their glorious colors.
When it rains, the exhibition will be held on Friday, August 27 at 5:30 p.m.
Happy August. Nice garden. keep calm.
