Extension Gardener Workshop – ONLINE

Vegetable Boot Camp (Part 3 of 6)

Three Sisters Vegetable Crops

Vegetable crops are classified as either ‘warm-season’ or ‘cool-season’ according to their optimum planting time. Warm-season crops are generally planted after the last frost in spring and harvested by the first freeze in autumn, but vary in the specific horticultural practices needed for optimum production.

Join Matt Jones (Extension Horticulture Agent) for a recorded online webinar targeting home and community gardeners on how to grow warm-season vegetables. Participants will learn about planting techniques and timing, best varieties, common problems, and harvesting methods for cucumbers, okra, peppers, eggplant, southern peas, and tomatoes.

The lectures will be presented as recorded Zoom webinars. Click here to register online. Lectures will be released starting April 15, but you can register anytime after that through June 30. On April 15 and on a rolling basis thereafter, you will be emailed the links to the recorded lectures.

Please complete the requested demographic information: N.C. Cooperative Extension tracks this demographic information to make sure we are serving citizens of all communities and to ensure our audiences are as diverse as possible. After completing the three modules, please fill out a brief evaluation of the course so we can continue to make improvements and measure the impacts of our programs. Those that complete the survey will be entered into a monthly (April- June) drawing to win a hardcopy of the NC Extension Gardener Handbook.

This workshop is part of the Extension Gardener series of workshops that are open to everyone. It is also part of the Extension Master Gardener℠ program. More information about becoming a Master Gardener volunteer in Chatham County.
