KATHY’S HOME & GARDEN TIPS – FOURTH OF JULY LAWN AND GARDEN

Lawn and Garden:

The Lawn and Garden are suffering much this year from the drought we in the Chicago area are in. Keep watering to maintain grass and garden health. Now that it's so hot as well as dry grass needs water twice a week. Garden every third day and pots and hanging baskets daily. The lawn gets a lot of foot traffic during the holiday BBQs so give it a little extra water the next day.

Home:

If you are having people over to cook out over the fourth make it easy on yourself. For meats to

BBQ steaks are most easy. If your gang is too large to afford all steaks the old stand-by burgers and sausage are crowd favorites. If you are going to do Italian sausage I strongly suggest you find your local Italian Deli to procure your links. The taste is so superior to store bought it isn't funny. Also try new sausage flavors, all major supermarkets have new fancy links to try. Don't forget to have plain dogs for the kids. If they're anything like my Grandchildren they only want familiar foods.  For all the salads you make, dry ingredients can be cooked and chilled even 2 days ahead of time (potatoes, pasta, eggs, etc.) Chop celery and onion ahead.  Mix together the day you serve. Lettuce greens can be washed and chopped the night before. Wrap loosely in paper towel and store in a plastic bag till ready to use.  

Have a Wonderful and Safe Fourth of July! God Bless America and Keep Our Troops Safe!!!
