In the WEL
The vegetable garden
Cherry tomatoes! Choices seem endless for these little flavor gems that say summer with every bite.
Do your tomatoes have brown leathery patches on the bottoms? Visit our Vegetable Problems in Summer pages for answers to this and more.
In the orchard
Harvest season has begun. Support branches heavy with fruit to prevent them from breaking.
Keep fallen fruit picked up to avoid disease and rodents.
See more July orchard activities.
Grass clippings can be a great source of nitrogen, but beware!
If applications of weed-n-feed or any herbicides have been applied to the lawn, those clippings should not go into the pile.
Bay Laurel. Want an herb you can harvest year around? If you’ve ever priced Bay leaves at the store, you’ll want to grow your own--even in a container.
Brown marmorated stink bugs (BMSB) (Halyomorpha halys) have invaded several areas in Sacramento County.
The Bagrada bug (Bagrada hilaris) was first found in Sacramento County in November, 2014.
