Growing Garlic and Extending the Gardening Season
with Sharon Turner
Maine has a short growing season – traditionally four months more or less. There are, however, many ways to lengthen that short season and have good wholesome food available through the fall, winter, and early spring. In this class we will explore everything from old-fashioned cold frames and hot caps to the latest in low and high tunnels and coverings. Seed starting, winter vegetable storage and fall garlic planting will be addressed. Organic practices will be emphasized. Garlic to plant this fall for harvest next summer will be available for purchase. Registration $30 plus $10 for materials (handouts) to be paid to instructor. 3 weeks 6:00-8:00 p.m. Begins Tues 10/2 CHRHS Rm 210 Sharon Turner owns Crystal Lake Farm in Washington, ME.
