Texas A&M AgriLife extension has a nice guide for Fall vegetable gardening:
We went through our first growing season via hand watering. Now between seasons we will be adding drip irrigation soon.
Sunday, July 21st, 6:30-7:30pm Come meet the gardeners and enjoy some ice cream and get any produce ready to harvest
There are usually people at the garden doing various caretaking activities Saturday 9 am, Tuesday 7 pm, Thursday 7 pm and Monday morning.
So, if you would like to talk to someone about the garden you can stop by at these times and can also email lamplightgarden@gmail to confirm someone to meet you.
We try to have a “formal” event at the Garden every other Saturday morning, but we are often there also the Saturdays in-between. We will be there Saturday, June 1 starting around 10 am to do various garden tasks, harvest some veggies and just hanging out. If you want to know if we are going to be there at any time just email anyone before and we’ll let you know.
There will a repeat of the weed/plant identification class by Sarah Schopp as well general construction work (putting up a shade triangle, laying down irrigation tubing, general garden maintenance).
A more formal class will be next weekend, per our normal every-other-week schedule. Tentative topic/s: Compost, Mulch, Fertility, Cover Crops, Plant Maintenance and Watering + (intro to Disease & Pests and Beneficials)
Sarah will provide information on harmful vs harmless weeds as well as wildflowers
