Sept. 15: Extending the Growing Season — While we’re experiencing one of our best growing seasons in recent memory, we still have at least two more months left to grow. Learn what you need to be doing in your garden now to make the most of your efforts: successive plantings, row covers, hoop houses, fall crops, cover crops, planting onion seeds for next year and more.
