   Are those spring blooming plants starting to look droopy?  Deadhead those spent blooms and cut back the plant a bit to give it a boost.  Come cooler weather you'll find the plant has rejuvenated and is ready to bloom again. 
   Believe it or not, it's time to think about fall planting of cool weather vegetables.  Check out seed packs, timing and your calendar!  As an example, it takes pansies 12 weeks from sprout to flowering.
