Grow Your Groceries - The Nightshade Family
The highlight for August is vegetables belonging to the nightshade family like tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers.
Jeanne Lardino, Frelinghuysen Arboretum Gardener and Chef and Master Gardener Cynthia Triolo team up to present programs focusing on the Barkman Vegetable Garden. Jeanne will focus on growing techniques, best varieties, pest and disease management and how to harvest. Cynthia prepares a few dishes using the veggies and herbs for you to taste, focusing on storage and cooking methods. Recipes accompany each talk.
Each program in this series is eligible for 1.5 Rutgers Master Gardener CEU's.
