Too hot to garden in the heat of the North Carolina summer? Are you looking forward to cooler weather gardening in the fall? Do you plant fall crops, but do they not mature fast enough before we get frost? Want to learn how to grow those great, nutritious green fall crops like kale and Swiss chard? Want to learn how to protect your fall/winter crops and pick lettuce—even where there is snow on the ground? Do you wonder what is a collard and how do you eat (as well as when to plant it? For answers to these and other gardening questions, join us for the August Extension Master Gardener volunteer lecture where Rich Woynicz will talk about fall and winter gardening and answer all of these and more questions.
