Tickets are on sale for the 2023 Jefferson County Master Gardener Foundation’s 25th Anniversary Yard & Garden Virtual Lecture Series. The lectures are offered in a live webinar format, and will run on six Saturday mornings: February 11 and 25, and March 4, 11, 18, and 25.

The lecture on February 25 is “Veggies Year Round: Growing Edibles Through All Seasons”

Bill Thorness is a writer, editor, and gardener who has worked and gardened in Seattle since the mid-1980s. He is the author of two gardening books: Cool Season Gardener: Extend the Harvest, Plan Ahead, and Grow Vegetables Year Round and Edible Heirlooms: Heritage Vegetables for the Maritime Garden, both from Skipstone Press. He will address how we can grow veggies year round, in part by using our mild late winter to sprout the edible garden early. That translates to longer harvests and more use of our garden throughout the year. Then, when planting summer crops, Bill will invite you to think about what your garden can feed you in winter — and next spring. With some planning, you can harvest from your garden through the holidays and have a bounty of early-spring vegetables before most gardeners have broken ground. Learn what to plant through the year, and how to fit winter crops into the summer garden.
