Plant of the Week: Skeleton-Leaf Goldeneye

Tips of the Week

  • Plant transplants of beans and summer squash.
  • With cooler weather, your peppers will start performing again.
  • Watch out for fall webworms on trees like pecans. If your tree is small, spray with Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). If trees are tall, try to penetrate the webs with a rake or stick to open them up, so beneficial wasps will take care of those caterpillars for you.
