Ten Tips for the September Gardener:
Click on the links for additional information. For the full list of tips, visit Gardening Tips for September.
Plant peonies now, but make sure the crowns are buried only one and a half to two inches below ground level. Planting them deeper than two inches may keep them from blooming.
Get a jump on next year’s lawn and gardens by having a soil test done through the UConn Soil Nutrient Analysis Laboratory.
Now is the time to de-thatch and aerate lawns to promote root growth.
Remove bagworm egg masses from evergreen shrubs to eliminate the spring hatch from over-wintered eggs.
Apply fall fertilizer to lawns between Sept. 15th and Oct. 15th.
Continue to water any new shrub or tree plantings until the first hard frost.
Rake up leaves, twigs, and fruit from crabapple trees and throw them in the garbage to help control apple scab disease.
As tomatoes end their production, cut down plants, pick up any debris and put dead/diseased plant parts in the trash or take to a landfill. Many diseases will over-winter on old infected leaves and stems so these are best removed from the property.
At the end of the month, dig and store tender bulbs like caladiums and tuberous begonias. Wait until dahlias and cannas are blackened by frosts before digging.
Keep herbaceous plant material located a few feet away from the house to eliminate hiding places for insects and mice that could wind up indoors as temperatures plummet.
Have Your Soil Tested for Macro- & Micronutrients

image013.jpgSend your soil sample in for testing now in preparation for next year’s planting. Our standard nutrient analysis includes pH, macro- and micronutrients, a lead scan and as long as we know what you are growing, the results will contain limestone and fertilizer recommendations. The cost is $12/sample. You are welcome to come to the lab with your ‘one cup of soil’ but most people are content to simply place their sample in a zippered bag and mail it in. For details on submitting a sample, go to UConn Soil and Nutrient Laboratory.

I feel like I have not done a very good job of sharing more about this amazing product we make from Organic and Wild Maine Blueberries. This product is our Organic Wild Maine Blueberry Sprinkles. We offer our Sprinkles in a glass shaker jar so you can sprinkle these crunchy blueberry flakes on your salads, yogurt, cereals & of course ice cream! We offer Sprinkles at our Farm Store & online, or at some retail stores (see our website for 'Where to Find Us', including Wild Cow Creamery in Belfast. My favorite salad with the Sprinkles is an Arugula Salad with Blueberry Sprinkles, feta, cucumbers, avocado and a Lemon Dressing. Let me know if you want the recipe. So good!

Straight from the source. In Maine, dairy is always in season and local.
This June Dairy Month, we are celebrating the folks who support Maine dairy farmers by sourcing their dairy locally for their products. And because it is National Cheese Day, what better day to feature this partnership between Amy Rowbottom of Crooked Face Creamery and Carrie Whitcomb of Springdale Farm in Waldo. Amy has earned quite the following for her Gouda and Smoked Ricotta cheeses, and of course, great cheese starts with great milk, so Amy sources her milk from the Whitcombs' herd of Jerseys and Guernseys. Carrie is a cheese maker herself, making fresh flavored cream cheeses and a melty cheese called Queso Tencho, and she is working on a triple cream, which Amy can attest to as being "out of this world." Although they are in the same business, Amy and Carrie aren't in competition but are friends and supportive of one another and enjoy taking cheese trips together.
Making Maine cheese with Maine milk - it doesn't get any more local than that! #JuneDairyMonth #UndeniablyDairy
