What to do in your Iowa garden this month

By Veronica Lorson Fowler
The Iowa Gardener, www.theiowagardener.com
Summer is here and gardens have kicked into full gear. Get out and enjoy them!
• Harvest as much of your cool-season spring vegetables now. Once weather hits, lettuces get bitter, peas get tough, and radishes get woody.
• If you planted pansies, they’ll start to fade in early summer heat. Replace them with warm-season annual flowers, such as geraniums, marigolds, and impatiens.
• You can prune spring-blooming shrubs, such as lilacs, now since they’re done flowering.

Walkin'

“I got my marijuana license right here,” the man in the coffee shop told me, then the shop owner pitched in, “My license is by the cash register.” The topic came up while having a friendly chat with people in rural Colorado.
Sabra and I traveled to the state last week to visit her family.
Our first stop was Denver, where her parents live, and then we moved on to Crestone, where her sister and her husband live.
