Fall Vegetable Gardening (HMNS)

After the dog days of summer comes the perfect time to toss together iron rich salad greens, sauté veggie shish kabobs or simmer hardy vegetable soups that your whole family will enjoy. One advantage of living in Houston is how easy it is to grow vegetables in the fall and winter seasons. Think you have no space for a garden? Not to worry, as many of these vegetables can be grown in containers on a sunny patio. You will learn when and where to plant, soil preparation, seed germination and transplanting a long list of vegetables, including lettuce, endive, radicchio, cress, kale, chard, cabbage, collards, bok choy, mustard, mizuna, arugula, kohlrabi, carrot, beet, rutabaga, potato, turnip, parsnip, radish, celeriac, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, snow pea, onion, multiplying onion, leek, garlic, garlic chives, cilantro/coriander, sorrel, fennel, parsley, rosemary, sage, thyme, pea shoots and mint. There are no refunds on classes.
