KINGSTON, N.Y. — “Get the Most out of Your Garden” is a three-part, live online workshop offered by Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County’s Master Gardener volunteers that will help move your veggie garden to the next level! Designed to inspire and educate gardeners of all backgrounds and abilities, this final session in the Vegetable Gardens for Everyone series will take place on Monday, April 19, from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
In the first class, “Extending the Season,” Master Gardener Cecily Frazier will share her extensive knowledge to help you decide if early spring and fall plantings are right for you. How can you get a jump on the season and do some early spring planting? And when do you start seeds for fall plantings and early winter harvesting? Should you invest in row covers and cold frames?
The second class, “Nourish Your Garden,” Master Gardener Barbara Bravo will share how to use compost, fertilizers, manures, cover crops, and crop rotation can make a big difference in your veggie yields.
But what about that fungus … and those bugs? In “Veggie Problem Solving,” Master Gardener Barbara Bravo returns to help you learn how to identify pests and diseases. She will explain what to do about these problems, and point you to reliable resources from the internet, fact sheets and books.
Each class is live, and includes time for questions and discussion. There will be 30 minute breaks between classes. To register, go to ulster.cce.cornell.edu/events. The cost for all three classes is $25. Registrations will be accepted until April 18, 2021.
