Monthly Garden To-Do List: May

Cherries! Blueberries! Strawberries! Peaches!  The summer fruits are here.
  • It's a nice time to plant sunflowers.  These are annuals, but they do drop their seeds and could naturalize, depending on the variety.  Try a few heights and colors.
  • The lavender is flowering.  Cut a bunch and bring it inside.  Lavender has been known to aid in sleep, and it you can also cook with it.  Put some under your pillow to help you sleep.  Or find a recipe and add some in; there is a nice vanilla lavender cupcake recipe online- look for it.
