If you can't wait for spring to come around so you can get some dirt under your nails in your garden, this workshop is the perfect thing for you.

The El Paso Master Gardeners group will have a Backyard Gardening series where you can learn all about growing summer vegetables. You'll get to find out everything you need to know about growing tomatoes with their Tomatoes 101 talk. You can find out all about container and herb gardening, soils and amendments. You can even take advantage of their vegetable seedling sale right after the program.

If you need more information, call Denise Rodriguez, 771-2354.
