06:30 pm Brussels Sprouts, Kale, Cabbage, Oh My! Our focus this week is on cruciferous crops like kale, cabbage, broccoli, and brussel sprouts. We will talk about how to grow these cool season crops as well as ways you can extend the season with row covers and low tunnels. We also will share recipes and taste dishes that you can prepare at home from fresh produce that we grew in our gardens!
06:30 pm Root Crops In the fall, we often can be bombarded with harvesting carrots, sweet potatoes, and beets. This class will focus on many root crops, what they are, how to grow and when to harvest. After learning about harvesting, you will be tasting fun recipes that focus on this group of veggies using fresh herbs and seasonings that also can be grown in your garden.
06:30 pm Summer Squash, Winter Squash and Dried Beans So many of us have an excess of zucchini, and many gardening magazines highlight dried beans and winter squash, but we just are not sure what to do with them. We will discuss some of the problems that may happen during the growing season with summer and winter squash, talk about the differences, and share information on beans that are grown just for drying. You will taste bean soup and see how to prepare squash as well as learn about zoodles!
06:30 pm Tomatoes and Peppers Fresh salsa is always a popular fall treat. We will spend a little time covering information about growing tomatoes and peppers but even better, we will be tasting. . . SALSA! Participants will learn about water bath canning and watch a demonstrate on how to use one. And, of course, salsa is the product that can be preserved using water bath canning. Drying and freezing some of our harvest for later use will also be covered.
