Gardening 101: Peppers


Gardening 101: Peppers

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.

Think outside the “Bell” – There is a great big world of exciting new culinary exploration if you will take the journey with us. Peppers thrive in our summer heat – well, the hot ones anyway. But there are some not-so-hot varieties that can produce during the summer too… You don’t have to wait ’til September for Bells and Anchos to kick in. Interactive: Each attendee will pot up a couple pepper plants to take home — your choice, hot or not — and together we will set out a few transplants in the Herff Farm garden beds.

July 17 – Pollinators
August 21 – Invertebrate and Disease Management
