Garden Troubleshooting: Disease Control, Tomatoes, and Season Extension

 Darrin's Garden Walk 7.28.16-021 cropped long.jpg

It seems that for all the times that something goes so right in your garden, every season there is something that goes wrong- whether it is the powdery mildew on your squash leaves, the giant green tomatoes that never seem to ripen, or the early frost that takes out your garden before you are ready to stop eating homegrown veggies. Come do some garden troubleshooting with horticultural expert Darrin Parmenter of CSU Extension for La Plata County. Darrin will cover a plethora of common garden hang-ups including plant diseases, how to get your tomatoes to ripen, and some DIY season extension for backyard gardeners. Don’t forget to bring your own questions as there will be time to dive into your specific garden issues!

These workshops are provided for farmers, landowners, backyard & community gardeners, and the general public. This workshop is most applicable to backyard & community gardeners.
