COOKING DEMONSTRATION: RUBY RED RHUBARB

A RECORDED PROGRAM

Technically a vegetable, we've come to think of rhubarb as a fruit because of the way it's used in most kitchens. It became extremely popular in England in the 19th Century when a new variety named 'Victoria' was introduced as a commemorative of Queen Victoria's coronation in 1837. Chef Cynthia Triolo will teach you some recipes, both old and new, that star this versatile vegetable/fruit.

SINCE THIS IS A RECORDED PROGRAM, YOU CAN REGISTER TO RECEIVE THE LINK AND WATCH THE PROGRAM AT YOUR CONVENIENCE. Once received, you can view it at any time.

FRIENDS MEMBERS ONLY ANNUAL MEETING

VIRTUAL ZOOM PROGRAM

Peter Nitzsche, Morris County's Agricultural Agent and New Jersey's small fruit expert, presents "Growing Strawberries in the Home Garden". Nothing quite compares to the flavor of a fresh, ripe, locally grown stawberry. Luckily, strawberries are one of the easier fruits to grow in the home garden. Learn a bit more about growing strawberries, a few tips and tricks to maximize the harvest, and about pests and problems you might encounter along with how to manage them.
