Warm Season Vegetable Gardening
Zoom Online Workshop
Sat. April 24, 2021
10 – 11 am, plus Q & A
With Lisa Wagner
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.
Many of our favorite vegetables require warm weather to grow and develop fruit – tomatoes, peppers, squash, and beans are just a few summer favorites.
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.
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.
Free, but must RSVP.
