At 10 a.m. I’m giving a one-hour workshop on Starting Fall & Winter Vegetables at City People’s Garden Store in Madison Valley. It’s free, but they like it if you pre-register. It’s a great nursery with lots of good plants, products and people. The Three P’s of great gardens!
Then, at 1 p.m. I’m joining the Ballard Edible Garden Tour, sponsored by Sustainable Ballard. I’ll be under the tent at Ballard Corners Park, 17th Avenue NW and NW 63rd St., talking about season extension techniques. I’ll bring some show-and-tell, and also — as always — seeds to share! What’s more, I’ve donated a copy of each of my books, Cool Season Gardener and Edible Heirlooms, to their raffle, which will be drawn at two.
Edible Garden Tour, now in its fifth year, is a great way to get inspired by seeing how other people grow their veggies. Get a map at the park and take the whole tour.
At both of these events, I’ll have a list of my favorite fall and winter plants to grow, and offer tips on when to get them started and how to make them successful.
