  It is proven that fall is the most effective time of year to plant new trees and shrubs and certainly re-seed a lawn or start a new lawn.  Plants put into the ground anywhere from late August through late October in our zone are often treated to a less stressful environment.  Rains are normally sufficient this time of year and the new plantings do not require as much irrigation as they would in the heat of the summer.  Temperatures are also more moderate, with mild days followed by cool nights.  Soil temperatures are optimal for root growth while the outside temperatures allow for the plants to slowly harden off the top to prepare for the winter months.  Roots will continue to grow well into November and even December.

September 26, 2014
The fall festival last Saturday definitely was a big hit as all the different centers of activity were busy all day long. Especially entertaining was the Outback Ray Show with all his animals and his own antics keeping the crowd mesmerized during each showing.  

The weatherman’s “promise” of good weather on Saturday came true but the  prediction of rain and thunderstorms did not unless one-tenth of an inch of rain counts. A good rainfall of one to two inches is sorely needed but the forecast through the weekend is sunny and dry. At least the sunny forecast is a good thing for the Mum Fest coming up this weekend. The festival will be packed with out-of-town visitors from other states along with the locals. Read entire blog entry...
