Do all you can to keep your marriage healthy and happy

One of the most important things spouses can do is to show appreciation every day for each other. Too many spouses take each other for granted.  They expect the love they have to just last and last without doing anything.  This is false and dangerous.  Words that can help us understand the meaning and importance of appreciation are gratitude, thankfulness and gratefulness.  Spouses are to find ways to show daily how much they are grateful for their partners.  No day should pass without a spouse showing with words and action how much they love their partner.  When was the last time you said thank you to your spouse?  When was the last time you told your spouse they look lovely.  Remember, once is not enough.
According to experts there are at least four elements of appreciation:
Acknowledgment: The first step each of us can take in expressing our appreciation to our partner is to acknowledge the things he or she does.  Expressing appreciation for the little things cumulatively builds a rock solid foundation.  Receiving acknowledgment helps each of us grow as individuals, and sometimes, just survive the daily hassles of hectic schedules, deadlines, and responsibilities in the various aspects of our lives.
Adoration: Praising each other for the qualities and attributes that make us special as individuals is crucial.  Taking the time to genuinely let each other know how much we admire each other's virtues brings joy to us and reinforces our continued individual and relationship growth.

Acceptance: Learning to accept each other as we are, rather than trying to change the other, is a difficult struggle and adjustment for most couples.  Accepting each other as we are is a vital part of expressing appreciation in a marriage.  Over time we actually appreciate the differences and see the benefits they bring to us as individuals and as partners.
Affirmation: Letting each other know how important we are to each other.  Affirmations are important in building and supporting each other's sense of self-esteem.  Affirming your spouse is a way of validating who they are.  When we affirm each other, we kindle the depths of the soul of our marriage."
Here are a few examples how you can affirm your spouse.  Hold hands in the car when you are at the stop light.  Wink at each other across a crowded room.  Give a love letter or card on days other than birthdays and anniversaries.  Jump surprisingly in the shower with her, but do not have sex.  Take him a bunch of hibiscus flowers you picked from your garden.  Rush out to give your wife a cool glass of water while she is cutting the grass with the lawn mower.  Say "good morning honey" to your spouse.  Tell your spouse "thank you for that wonderful sexual experience last night."  Drive each other to work occasionally.  Eat lunch together regularly.  Cuddle each other in the living room without sex on the agenda.  Go on a date every week.  Gossip about your spouse to your friends as often as possible.  Have a photo of your spouse on your desk at work or in your wallet.
The latest research tells us that happy couples live longer and have healthier lives.  According to psychologist, Dr. Brent J. Atkinson, in his article "Emotion Intelligence" evidence suggests that those who succeed in their marriages will live an average of four years longer than those who don't (Gottman & Silver, 1999).  They will have an average of 35 percent less illness, have healthier immune systems, will be substantially less likely to become violent, homicidal, or suicidal, and less likely to experience an emotional or mental disorder.  They will have a lower risk of being involved in automobile accidents.  The children of those who succeed in their marriages will have fewer health problems, better academic performance, more social competence, less depression, less problems with social contact, more ability to regulate their emotions, lower heart rate physiological reactivity when experiencing negative emotions, and lower quantities of stress-related hormones circulating in their bodies.  Do all you can to keep your marriage healthy and happy.

Tasks for July

Since this is the start of the hot weather, I suggest that you do all hard jobs before or after the blistering part of the day is over.
Roses: Continue to cut back faded blooms to a healthy outside bud with five leaflets. Remove and dispose of leaves infected with black spot or mildew.  Continue your program of fertilizing, disease and pest control.
Fruit trees: This is the beginning of the mango season so you can give your fruit trees a small dose of fertilizer.  Check all your fruit trees for dead branches and remove any branch that may cause damage to your home in the event of a hurricane.  Check your citrus trees for thrips, mites and mealy bugs.  Remember to seal all wounds with pruning paint or sealant.
Flowers: Continue to remove spent blossoms of annuals, perennials and summer bulbs. Add organic mulch to control weeds and maintain moisture at the roots of the plants. Sow zinnias, marigolds and other annuals to be ready for fall  flowering.
Trees and shrubs: Prune summer bloomers to encourage blooming. Check hibiscus plants for scales and ixora plants for white flies and spray accordingly.
Lawns: Mow and fertilize your lawn.  If there is no rain, use a sprinkler to water your grass.  Continue with your weed control program.  If you have crab grass problem there is a selective herbicide "Image" which can be used effectively.
Watering: During the summer months you are required to do more watering of your lawn, vegetable and flower garden.  The most efficient way to supply water is at ground level. This minimizes evaporation and places the water exactly where it is needed in the soil. I would suggest that you use overhead sprinklers early in the day to minimize evaporation and allow time for leaves to dry.  Watering of your lawn should be carried out in the evening after 5 p.m.  An automatic timer ensures that the garden gets watered even when you are not at home, but always check a plant to see if it needs water by sticking a finger a few inches into the soil.  Water deeply if it feels dry.  Avoid letting plants get to the wilting point as wilting weakens overall plant health.  Keep newly transplanted plants well watered until they are established in the garden soil.

Watch for: Attacks by aphids, scale and thips, and spray with an insecticide containing Blackleaf 40, Malathion or Orthene Systemic Insect Spray.  Follow the directions given by the manufacturer for application.  To control slugs and snails, control using a bait containing Menurol or any other slug and snail bait.

Planting guide for July
Flowers: Aster, cosmos, gaillardia, marigold, portuluca, periwinkle, salvia.
Vegetables: Celery, collards, eggplant, okra, pepper, spinach and turnip.
Grasses: Bahia and Bermuda

By Gardener Jack

DURING the upcoming vegetable growing season we will need to use plenty of fertilizer to ensure good crops. Plants produce some of their food through photosynthesis, and in the early stages through seed leaves. But this is like a car in idle; it will not take you far.

Plants also need elements and absorb them through their roots in the form of soluble salts. There are three major elements: nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Then there are the minor elements, those of which we usually need only a trace, but like vitamins to human beings they are all essential to the health of a plant. The minor elements are calcium, magnesium, zinc, chlorine, copper, manganese, molybdenum, sulphu ...
