Preventative Maintenance for Lawn Fungus

Fungus diseases:

If your lawn is developing areas that yellow and then turn brown, and you cannot find any insect pests, then you may consider the possibility of a fungus disease, particularly if you have been watering a lot, or watering at night. Closely examine the grass blades to see if they appear to be rotting off where they're attached to the stem. If so, then a fungus disease is a good possibility. Of course, if you see mushrooms, you definitely have fungus!


August Garden Tips

It's August and we are feelin' the heat in So Cal! Believe it or not, August is the month to prepare for the fall. "Already?" some might say. Here's why we start now for fall: August is the best time to plant seeds for annual and biennial flowers and cool-season vegetables. The warm soil makes it perfect for seed germination and by October, the prime fall planting time, the seedlings will be ready to transplant into your garden. Anther reason to plant now: biennials and perennials that normally bloom the second year in cooler climates will bloom their first spring in Southern California.



What You'll Need:

  • 2 pounds new red potatoes, scrubbed
  • 6 eggs
  • 1 pound bacon
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
  • 2 cups mayonnaise
  • salt and pepper to taste

Step by Step:

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
  • Add potatoes and cook until tender but still firm, about 15 minutes.
  • Drain and set in the refrigerator to cool.
  • Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring water to a boil and immediately remove from heat.
  • Cover and let eggs stand in hot water for 10 to 12 minutes.
  • Remove from hot water, cool, peel and chop.
  • Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium high heat until evenly brown.
  • Drain, crumble and set aside.
  • Chop the cooled potatoes, leaving skin on.
  • Add to a large bowl, along with the eggs, bacon, onion and celery. Add mayonnaise, salt and pepper to taste.
  • Chill for an hour before serving.
