Spring has finally sprung here in the Northwest! I will be in Washington this weekend talking about vegetable gardening and I hope that you’ll be able to come out to one of my events. Here’s my schedule:
Friday April 13th
Vashon Bookshop on Vashon Island at 6pm
I am super excited to hop on the Vashon ferry tomorrow afternoon and glide across the water to the island! Vashon has an amazing community of gardeners, great nurseries, and the wonderful Vashon Bookshop, who is hosting me for a talk about my new book, Grow Cook Eat: A Food-Lovers Guide to Vegetable Gardening, Including 50 Recipes, Plus Harvesting & Storage Tips. The event begins at 6:00 pm and I’m going to chat about my favorite spring crops and how to grow warm season crops in our cool climate. Plus, I’m happy to answer any of your garden questions and sign a book for you!

The Plant Farm in Marysville, Washington at 11:00 am
If you’ve never been to the amazing Plant Farm nursery, here’s your excuse! I’m giving a lecture (a fun one, I promise!) on my very favorite subject: extra edibles. What are “extra edibles”, you say? They are the all the wonderful, delicious crops that gardeners get to harvest and eat, like pea shoots, fava greens, kale flower buds,and green coriander. There will be a Q&A and book signing following the talk and also great shopping!
Sunday, April 15th
Molbak’s Nursery in Woodinville, WA at 11:00
It is Molbak’s Edible Gardening Weekend! I will be at the nursery on Sunday to talk about how to grow and harvest Salad All Summer Long. A Q&A and book signing will follow the talk. It should be a great weekend to get some plants in the ground and Molbak’s is stocked up with lots of veggies seedlings and seeds. Plus, they will be giving away prizes throughout the weekend!
