This workshop will cover which plants can be grown late in the season and when to start your seeds so you have plants available in fall. Although vegetable crops will be highlighted, some ornamentals like flowering kale and pansies will also be discussed. Topics include the challenges of starting seeds in outdoors in hot weather, in protected locations, and under lights indoors.
