This weekend promises to be a fun one for me! Tomorrow morning I’m headed to Molbak’s Nursery in Woodinville, Washington at 10:00 am to talk about how to get the most from your garden. I’m going to discuss organic fertilizing basics, best watering practices, succession planting, and tips for keeping your garden productive and full of food from now through late fall! I’m also planning on picking up some warm season vegetable starts so I can get them in the ground on Sunday.
On Sunday, I have the pleasure of speaking at the beautiful Joy Creek Nursery west of Portland. This gorgeous nursery is set up on a hillside. It has a fabulous selection of plants, but the display gardens are the real treat here. Huge beautiful borders bursting with a unusual and interesting perennials make the shopping experience really special! I’m going to talk about growing food in containers at 1 pm. I’m excited to check out the veggies they will have on hand! They always offer a carefully curated selection of beautiful vegetables and Maurice Horn, the owner of the nursery, promised me they will have some grafted tomatoes and eggplants, basils and beautiful lettuces!
I will be signing copies of my new book Grow Cook Eat: A Food Lover’s Guide to Vegetable Gardening after each event! Hope to see you there.
