Separate spring bulbs now, and sow last seeds

The last week in July is a good time to dig up spring-blooming bulbs such as daffodils, crocus and tulips and separate them so you can move colonies all over the garden. This is also your last chance to plant more vegetable seeds for harvest this winter. Sow seeds of beets, broccoli, kale, bush beans and carrots and you could enjoy veggies from your own garden well past Thanksgiving Day.
