MOST POPULAR ONLINE ARTICLE: “HOW TO ATTRACT FIREFLIES” Fireflies are the stuff of magic and faerie, at least in the minds of children (and more than a few grown-ups). They rule the midsummer night, dipping and dancing across backyards, parks, and meadows, keeping their lights on well into the small hours of the morning. Many a summer childhood memory involves an empty mayonnaise jar, a few holes punched in its lid, and some hand-caught bits of starlight flashing inside. Unfortunately, fireflies’ spectacular light displays have been fading away, blinking out as fewer and fewer fireflies join the show each year. The reasons include loss of habitat, widespread use of pesticides, and increased light pollution. We can save the fireflies, but we need to act now.

the fifth season

THROUGH THESE DOG DAYS of summer, which can’t end soon enough, I find myself downcast even when gardening. I begin to miss the weeds, the lack of which seems a harbinger of winter, visible now in the hot, dry remains of this summer’s bounty. This time of year is what I call “the fifth season,” a liminal space between green summer and crisp fall. I often think of the Greek goddess Demeter during this transition. At this turn of the year, she would release her daughter, Persephone, to Hades, and grieve as she watched her make the dark journey to the underworld. Like Demeter, I’m anxious during the fifth season. I’ll get to work thinning the iris bed, hoping that I’ve separated new growth deftly, rather than destroying these happy Iridaceae.…

RAISING MONARCHS The Spring 2019 issue of Heirloom Gardener was the best money I’ve ever spent. The article “Milkweed & the Monarch” was just what I needed to read. Many people believe that it’s impossible to raise monarchs, but your article helps prove that it can be done. When my children were small, we raised monarchs several times. Even my great-grandson says his class at school raised them while learning about butterflies. This year, I have three chrysalises in my monarch enclosure. Already, one has emerged and begun drying its wings. I’m eager to see the other two butterflies, and to watch my hard work pay off. Theresa…

Lehman’s Outdoor Cypress Wooden Potting Table provides a stylish, multitiered workspace for storing gardening supplies, as well as for potting, transplanting, and dividing plants. This smooth, spacious, waisthigh table is built in Ohio by Amish craftspeople. The interchangeable slatted or solid tabletop inserts make for a versatile workstation, depending on your needs. You can alternately remove one piece of the tabletop to scoop soil from the 14-gallon Rubbermaid bin below, which slides conveniently into a track underneath the table. In addition to all this, its stainless steel fasteners won’t rust. Associate Editor Jessica Mitchell says, “I’m delighted by this potting table’s earthy, cypress-wood smell alone.

THE BIG BUSINESS OF HEMP The United States is facing a huge increase in the job market, and it’s coming from an unexpected source: hemp. According to the 2018 Farm Bill, hemp is no longer a controlled substance, which means hemp-based products will be on the rise, including everything from food and drinks to cosmetics and fibers. Previously, hemp had been held under the same federal restrictions as marijuana, despite containing less than 0.3 percent of the mind-altering compound tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC. Marijuana, by contrast, typically contains 5 to 30 percent THC. As of February 2019, 41 states permit the cultivation of hemp for commercial, research, or pilot programs, and most products created from these plants are focused around the medical uses of the compound cannabidiol (CBD). The only current FDA-approved CBD…
