Saturday, August 25th, 2012 – Keeping a Tidy Garden: Staking, Pruning, Harvesting, and Composting
August is often the month when gardens are at their peak. Avoid the “jungle garden” by learning how to properly stake and prune. Learn to distinguish when produce is ready for harvest and learn the principles of home composting. Please bring pruners if you have them.
