Gardening 101: Okra


Gardening 101: Okra

Herff Farm | 2:00pm-4:00pm

Farmer's Market, Learn

Join Keith Amelung of Have Spade Will Travel this Saturday and every 3rd Saturday after the Farmer’s Market at Herff Farm for an introduction to the “basics” of veggie gardening in the Texas Hill Country. We will cover the “how to get started” in a quick 1-hour presentation followed by a Q&A and a seasonal hands-on project.

Love it or hate it – these giants of the veggie garden THRIVE in our Texas summers. Even if you don’t eat the “fruits” of your labors, placed correctly in the garden okra can provide much-welcomed shade for other garden denizens. Interactive: Each attendee will plant up several seedlings to take home and together we will situate transplants, and sow a few seeds in the Herff Farm garden beds.

June 19 – Peppers
July 17 – Pollinators
August 21 – Invertebrate and Disease Management
September 18 – Preparing for the Fall
October 26 – Winterize Your Garden
November 20 – Container Gardening in Winter
 (these course subjects will be added to our calendar shortly)
