Backyard Vegetable Gardening is a new series that starts off with Fall Gardening Made Easy – The Basics.  Join us to learn more about how to start tart your own garden during COVID-19. You may even learn a quick tip or two for the established home garden. This is a series of three programs about fall vegetable gardening starting with vegetables to plant now through cleaning up at the end to be ready for the beginning come spring.

This first session will cover the basics for growing a successful fall vegetable garden. Learn how to start your garden, when and what to plant by seed or transplant to harvest later and summer vegetables that can continue to produce. Join us for this adventure showing you the enjoyment of fall vegetable gardening.

The second session, Extend The Season, will cover growing a fall vegetable garden with an eye on spring. Learn how a fall planting of spinach and garlic earlier can produce a more productive spring harvest. We will discuss fall planting under row covers to protect and continue growing after frost kills the warm season vegetables. Learn to construct a porch size version for leafy greens all winter.
