Description

Get ready to grow tasty and nutritious tomatoes, peppers and other heat-loving crops! Fresh tomatoes and peppers are some of the most delicious vegetables, but they can be tricky to grow in our cool summers. This in-person class will teach you how to get a successful harvest from these warm weather crops.

In this class you will learn about:

  • Varieties that do well in our maritime climate
  • When to plant warm season crops
  • Season extension techniques to maximize heat
  • Trellising and pruning to improve air circulation
  • Continued care of heat crops including fertilizing, watering and harvesting

This in-person class will feature an engaging, conversational lecture, some show & tell, and time for questions and answers with the instructor. A detailed outline with recommended resources will also be provided. Class will take place both indoors and outdoors, and will include some hands-on activities. Class size is limited to about 15 people, and we will be following current public health recommendations.
