Hello, again!
I think I’ve proven myself correct when I say that July is usually our hottest month of the year. I know this week's forecast, with a string of days at or and above the century mark, is all I care to see this summer. If my memory serves me correctly, we get into mid August and the daily temperature starts to trend downward a bit. Many times, I’ll watch the extended forecast in August and if it’s favorable, I’ll start my fall plantings like grass seed, fall blooming color items, and fall vegetables.

With the moisture we received earlier this week, it’s a perfect time to start the process of killing bermuda and other weeds from our turf with Hi-Yield KillzAll Weed & Grass KillerHi-Yield KillzAll is a non-selective, weed and grass killer, so it's perfect for killing off tough-to-remove weeds and grasses before lawn re-seeding. Late last week we sprayed around the store, and with the hot temperatures we had, the target weeds were showing decline in just a few hours. Total yellowing was evident in 3-4 days. 

Because of it’s non-selective properties, KillzAll does not select a type of plant to control. KillzAll has the advantage of being able to control both grassy and broadleaf weeds. It’s a safe and effective tool to control unwanted weeds wherever it's applied. Keep it away from desirables and only the target weeds are controlled. It’s rainfast in as little as 2 hours. Be sure to keep it away from desirables and only the target weeds are controlled. 

In other news, Jeremy and I had a conversation with our Hatch green chile supplier recently regarding the timing of our first load of green chile from Hatch, New Mexico. Our plan at this point, is to have chiles in the stores by this time next week. Things can change, rain, trucking, harvesters, etc., but at this point I think we are good to go! 

We are in the final stages of planning for the 2021 Iron ChileHead Festival.Tickets are on sale now at both Johnson's locations or online at ironchilehead.com We are excited to bring back one of Wichita's favorite beerfests, complete with your favorite regional breweries, food trucks and the Bolzen Beer Band!

Your friend in the garden,
