| A Walk Around the Blueberry Field|
|FROM WILMA: This morning I took a walk around the farm beginning in the “blueberry field” - so named for the blueberries we planted some 40 years ago. Many are long gone but a few still produce and are in full bloom now. A Champagne grape vine is growing nearby and is just now leafing out.|
One thing I was looking for was freeze damage. The apple trees appear to have escaped damage, but the pear tree did not. New growth on hostas and other perennials had some damage but should be ok. Some of you have expressed concern about freeze damage on hydrangeas. Most I have observed appear to be leafing out although flower buds on large-leaved varieties may be affected.
A large apple tree (Rhode Island Greening) that my dad helped plant many years ago is in full bloom. As I walked by it, I was amazed at the pollinators - yellow and black swallowtail butterflies, honeybees, bumble bees, and other insects I could not identify. The warm sunshine, bird song, and soft foliage color on the mountainsides made for a pleasant walk.
|Warm Season Vegetable Gardening|
Zoom Online Workshop
Sat. April 24, 2021
10 – 11 am, plus Q & A
With Lisa Wagner
A vegetable garden can be a lovely addition to home landscapes by attention to design and plant selection, even incorporating edibles into landscape beds. In late spring and summer, warm season vegetables and herbs bring on a different character to the vegetable garden than the leafy greens of early spring cool season plantings, from the attractive fruits of eggplants, peppers, and tomatoes to the twining vines of beans.
Many of our favorite vegetables require warm weather to grow and develop fruit – tomatoes, peppers, squash, and beans are just a few summer favorites.
Early May is the perfect time in our region to start putting in warm-season transplants and sow seeds of heat-loving crops like beans, squash, and cucumbers.
Join Lisa Wagner to learn about soil and light requirements, choosing vegetable varieties, planting intensively, doing succession cropping, growing in containers, and enjoying and preserving the harvest. The virtual Zoom program will also include a Q & A. Read Lisa's Bio.
Free, but must RSVP. Please do not sign up more than once.
