By Dawn Oldfield, Collin County Master Gardeners
Spend a morning with the Collin County Master Gardeners and learn how to make your own garden produce delicious, nutritious vegetables at the Fall into Vegetable Gardening program on Saturday, July 26.
The class will be at Myers Park and Event Center in north McKinney from 9 a.m. to noon.
In Collin County many vegetables grow well during fall and winter months. Master Gardeners will speak about the best varieties of vegetables for Collin County, and the right time to plant them for a year round garden. Topics will include the importance of soil preparation, month to month guidelines for planting, specific plant varieties, and harvesting information.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and demonstration tables and displays will have examples and information about raised bed construction, irrigation, compost, and row covers. Master Gardeners will be giving tours of our potager vegetable research gardens. Attendees can take home seeds and printed information to get their fall and winter garden off to a great start.
