Fall Vegetable Gardening Workshop – September 27
Spring vegetable gardening has been very popular in this area for many years. But don’t let your favorite garden patch, or your raised bed garden sit idly growing weeds until spring. There are some tasty vegetables that can be planted this fall.
There are wide range of cool-season vegetables that grow well in this area. In North Florida, fall is the time to plant: arugula, beets, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, celery, Chinese cabbage, collards, kale, lettuce, mustard greens, onions, radishes, spinach, strawberries, and turnips. Just imagine how neat would it be to feed your family holiday meals made fresh from the bounty of your own garden.
Join the Jackson County Master Gardeners for an informative two-hour workshop to learn about growing fall and winter vegetables. While the particulars of growing each of these different crops cannot be discussed in total, this two-hour workshop will provide some of the core principles needed for a successful garden in the cool-season. The topics will include: cool-season vegetable options, tips for success, and crop specific soil testing and fertilization.
The Fall Vegetable Garden Workshop will be Thursday, September 27th, from 6:00pm until 8:00 pm CST in the large auditorium at the Jackson County Extension Office, 2741 Penn Avenue, Marianna, FL 32448. There will be a Registration Fee of $10 per person payable at the door. Snacks, handouts and other goodies will be given out to every participant. Please contact the Jackson County Extension Service at (850) 482-9620 for more information, and to reserve your place in the class.
