Event description

Description

Purple Carrots, fingerling potatoes, golden beets and spicy garlic are just some of the root crops you could be growing in your garden. With the ability to plant both spring & fall crops and easy storage in the house or even right in the garden, root crops are a great crop family to add to your future garden. Join Melissa Almendinger, Garden Educator, for a discussion of successfully growing root crops organically from choosing the correct variety for your taste and region to sowing to harvest and storage.

After the discussion, the group will head out to the Education Plot to see these crops growing and learn how to tell when they are ready for picking.
