As tomato season cranks forth thousands of multicolored bubbles of nature’s joy, you may be wondering what to do with them all.
Allow me to suggest a wild idea: you could make a salsa superior to all salsas come before it. It could be Your. Best. Salsa. Yet. I know you don’t have time to experiment too much, you need that perfect salsa recipe without going through 50 recipes that are just so-so. How do you know what tastes the best? Sample the entries at the upcoming salsa contest organized by the staff at Terrain in Glen Mills. This is a part of their Heirloom Tomato Festival, on Saturday, August 23, from noon to 6.
The weather has been gorgeous since the healthy dose of rain. The rain meter read 1.6 inches, and the newly planted fall cabbages are loving their new home. There are still more fall goodies growing in the greenhouse, and will ensure plenty of green goodness throughout the rest of this season.
I will be teaching a workshop here in September, here’s the info!
Late Season Vegetable Gardening
Saturday, September 27, 10:00 – 11:30 am
Vegetable gardening doesn’t have to be over just because the weather gets colder! In this workshop, Tyler Vegetable Gardener Gabrielle LeBlanc will show you tricks for extending the growing season while also preparing your vegetable garden for a great spring. Learn about cold weather crops that can grow into winter and how low tunnels can help extend your season. The workshop will also cover ways to care for perennials in the off season, cover crop planting and other best practices for end-of-season garden care.
