Gardening for Fall and Winter Harvest

 

Hannah Madrone
By all means savor your tomato harvest, but it’s time to think about those cool-season vegetables that add fresh flavor to your fall and winter diet.  If you plan and plant now and learn a few tricks for protecting your garden from freezes, you can be harvesting tender salads, crunchy radishes, frost-sweetened kale and broccoli, and more, through winter and even into early spring.

Free; no registration required.

Hands On Mason Bee Fall Care Seminar                      

Ray Strelecki

Our gentle native Mason Bees have a much better survival and reproduction rate if given a little TLC in the fall.  Ray will bring in actual bee houses with live (dormant) Mason Bees and first demonstrate, then let you practice, basic fall Mason bee care.  Learn how to remove cocoons from the bee houses without harming the dormant bees, how to clean the blocks, and how to clean the cocoons.  Ray will also talk about how to deal with insect invaders (such as hornets) that sometimes like to try overwintering in bee houses.   Free, but class size is limited to allow everyone opportunity to practice.  Please pre-register in the store, by calling 206-546-4851, or by emailing sky@skynursery.com
