ZOOM Workshop – Join us Online!
Followed by Q&A Session
With Lisa Wagner
Sat. May 2, 2020 from 10 – 10:45AM plus Q&A
Get growing your favorite veggies! Early May is the perfect time in our region to start putting in warm-season transplants and sow seeds of heat-loving crops like beans, squash, and cucumbers.
Many of our favorite vegetables require warm weather to grow and develop fruit – tomatoes, peppers, squash and beans are just a few summer favorites.
A vegetable garden can be a lovely addition to home landscapes by attention to design and plant selection, even incorporating edibles into landscape beds. In late spring and summer, warm season vegetables and herbs bring on a different character to the vegetable garden than the leafy greens of early spring cool season plantings, from the attractive fruits of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to the twining vines of beans.
Join Lisa Wagner to learn about: soil and light requirements, choosing vegetable varieties, planting intensively, doing succession cropping, growing in containers, and enjoying and preserving the harvest. The virtual ZOOM program will also include a Q&A period.
