I’m excited to kick off this gardening season with two programs at the show followed by signings of my brand new book, Blue Ribbon Vegetable Gardening:
Thursday, February 18, 5:30 p.m. in the Hood Room
Blue Ribbon Vegetable Gardening
Have you ever marveled at mammoth pumpkins, giant cabbages and enormous onions at your state fair? This seminar teaches the tricks for growing the biggest, tastiest and best-looking vegetables for miles around. Whether you want to win ribbons, impress your friends or simply improve your vegetable growing efforts, this session is for you!
Friday, February 19, 3:15 p.m. DIY Demonstration Stage
A Dirty Dozen for Gardening on the Cheap
In this fast-paced gardening demonstration you’ll learn a dozen different ways to garden on the cheap — indoors and out. In quick succession you’ll discover how to grow garlic greens, deal organically with insect pests, make a portable potting bench, grow the most nutritionally dense food in a jar, mix up your own potting soil, grow a carrot centerpiece, test last season’s vegetable seeds, stock up on free fertilizers and more. You’ll leave this session armed with a year’s worth of money-saving gardening tips!
If you’re in the neighborhood, I hope you’ll stop by.
