Find Out How To Grow Your Own Veggies This Summer
courtesy: El Paso Master Gardeners Facebook
We all know that veggies are good for us, but sometimes they're expensive and if they're out of season, they don't taste as good as they look. Wouldn't it be great to grow your own, but where do you start? Do you need a ton of space, a staff of people to constantly weed and feed your veggies, and a ton of water?
All those questions and more will be answered during a presentation, Growing Summer Vegetables in Small Spaces, happening this weekend. El Paso Master Gardeners will be holding the event and they'll teach you how to do container gardening, which veggies do best in the El Paso summer, and even have an herb and plant sale so you can plant the things that you learn to grow. You can pick up tomato, eggplant, and basil plants starting at $3.00.
The program costs $10 and includes printed materials and handouts. Go to their website to sign up for the class. When you enter your name and other information, the address where you can send a check or money order will pop up. They only accept checks and money orders.
This sounds like a lot of fun, and a great thing for you and your beasties!
