Warm Season Veggies, beneficial herbs and flowers and the challenge of weeds
Most main-season vegetable, such as tomatoes, peppers, squash, cucumbers and corn, must be planted when soil and air temperatures are above 60 degrees. Learn how to select the healthiest transplants and, or seed varieties for Colorado’s ever – changing season. Included in class is an overview of basic planting, maintenance and harvesting techniques for each specific vegetable, a discussion of the major insect pests affecting each crop, an understanding of herbs and flowers that are beneficial companions and an in – depth discussion of ‘weedy invaders’ that can compete for soil nutrients and be hosts for pest insects. The instructor will also bring in samples of garden weeds and discuss organic methods for their control.
