Sowing Fall Crops

Pre-Registration is required. https://wasatchgardens.org/news-and-events/calendar/207It's still July, and some of your prized heirloom tomatoes may not have even set fruit yet. So why on earth are we going to be talking about fall crops? Now is the time to get busy preparing your garden beds and ordering your seeds for amazing cool season crops if you want to be harvesting fresh, healthy veggies in October, November, December and beyond!Come join us at the Grateful Tomato Garden to discuss the "when, where and how" of planting quick-maturing and cold-tolerant varieties of all your favorite greens and other cool season veggies.We'll take soil temperatures in shaded beds vs. sunny beds to better understand summer germination of cool season crops, learn about different kinds of shade cloth, and practice calculating "days to maturity" using fun and rare varieties of fall vegetable seeds. Students will also compare regular seeds to pelleted seed and practice using inoculant with fall peas. Each student will plant seeds that will grow in the teaching gardens and produce food throughout the fall and winter months. All students will receive a free packet of seeds to take home!
