How is the sun shining on your landscape these long summer days?
Summer in the Mid-Atlantic bioregion is an ideal time to observe sun, light and heat conditions. July can get very hot, and sometimes really dry, which can be stressful for plants.
Harsh conditions give us a great opportunity to observe our environment, and plan for how to protect plants, soil, water and wildlife, as they continue to face adverse conditions into the future.
We love to take every opportunity to remind you that simply observing Nature as it exists, and interacting as it emerges, is such a valuable way to spend your time in any season - especially if you haven’t yet observed the land for a full year.
Our latest blog post is full of helpful info and tools for understanding sun, heat and light.
