I think we are all pretty tired of this extreme heat and lack of rain. Every gardener that I know, feels as if their hoses might as well be permanently attached to their arms! I know I do. I can't remember when I have seen so many brown lawns and plants. Even the Missouri native plants are stressed.
Here are a few tips to get your gardens and yards through this heat:
