The weather has warmed and it is now time to get the spring vegetable garden in the ground. The gardener can get a head start by using plants instead of seed.
There are a variety of starter plants from which to choose. Tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, and much more are readily available locally.
Be sure to place them in a sunny location, but do not let the soil surrounding their roots dry out completely. Keep it moist so the vegetable can become established and productive.
To learn more come to the UF/IFAS Wakulla County Extension Service Open House and Wakulla Master Gardener Plant sale on April 2, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
See the vegetable garden demonstration, the native plant display, family and consumer sciences presentations, and 4-H club projects. Master Gardeners will be selling plants they have grown.
This event is free and open to the public. The address is 84 Cedar Avenue in Crawfordville and there is plenty of parking.
