July starts out with a bang on the 4th of July weekend. July is best spent relaxing, but there are still plenty of tasks that can be done any time and now is good. Gardens are in the height of their bloom and fruits and vegetables are showing up in profusion at the farmer’s markets. You may find that doing as much as possible during the spring and fall will free up your time for the ongoing chores your yard and garden require.
- Check your project list. If you’ve postponed projects, either hire someone to come in and get them done, or do them yourself now. Many projects, while not inexpensive, are worth doing just for the peace of mind.
- Paint projects? With windows open, July is a great month to paint.
- Clean the garage. Get rid of junk.
