OUR SEPTEMBER 2020 VIRTUAL PROGRAM

Our September 2020 vitural program is Fall Vegetable Gardening presented by Jim Ewoldsen.

Fall is the best season to plant a vegetable garden in North Texas. 

Many gardeners from other parts of the country are accustomed to growing vegetables in the spring, but in North Texas spring planting is often delayed by wet or cold weather and then plants are exposed to too-hot weather before they mature.

Generally in the fall, the weather is not as unpredictable and rainfall is more plentiful.

Variety selection is important because early maturing varieties yield a bountiful harvest before cold weather arrives.

Vegetables and Herbs for the Fall Garden will provide an overview of what to grow in the fall, when to plant, and how to protect the crops.  You will be provided with many of the varieties of vegetable and herbs perform well here in the fall garden.
