The University of Missouri Extension will offer a three-week fall vegetable gardening webinar series on from 6:30 to 8 p.m. Thursdays, Sept. 9, 16 and 23.
Fall planting, sometimes called succession planting, takes advantage of garden plots after summer crops are harvested and removed. Falling temperatures on the horizon means a fall crop often ends up higher in quality and taste than produce grown in the spring and summer, according to a press release.
Sessions cover soil basics on Sept. 9 and digs into the basics of soil testing; on Sept. 16, attendees will learn about “lasagna gardening," which doesn’t require any digging or tilling and turns kitchen scraps, yard waste and newspapers into layers of rich soil; and extending the growing season with row covers, hotbeds and cold frames on Sept. 23.
The course will be held virtually via Zoom. A Zoom link will be emailed to all registered participants the day ahead of each session. Registration is for all three sessions.
