Fall Planting--Extending Your Harvest

Part One - Extending Your Vegetable Harvest

Tomatoes ripe on the vine, beans heavy on the bush, zucchini getting overly plump... Oh the pleasures of summer gardening! 

It's hard to think about fall crops with so much going on, but now is the time to set out your plants for late season harvest.  In the fall, growers will find success with difficult spring crops like broccoli, cabbage, and Brussel sprouts!  The cool weather brings on a delicious sweetness to greens and roots and with simple season extension techniques growers can push harvest into December!

This lecture is part one of a two part series on Fall Gardening with Bread & Roses Nursery.  Part one will discuss annual vegetables and part twoperennials. 

The first lecture will focus on choosing the right crops, how to prepare your ground organically, tips and techniques from planting to harvest, and season extension.  This discussion will benefit both experienced and new gardeners.  Please join us for a fun afternoon. 

Presented by Jonas Carpenter of Bread & Roses Nursery and Mavourneen Farm.
