During our full-day gardening classes, such as Don't Wait for Summer Vegetables!, Summer Vegetable Gardening, and Winter Vegetable Gardening, we give short shrift to root vegetables. That's not because we don't grow them or adore them. We do! It's because in those other classes, students take home a sown tray of assorted veggies, and because of the nature of root crops, that's not possible.
In this particular workshop, we are going to focus solely on root crops. California Bay Area gardeners can grow many root vegetables 12 months a year. Here at Love Apple, we grow a wide variety "normal" types of root veg and a lot of delicious weirdos too. We want to share those crazies with you, as well as impart the essential knowledge the cultivation that these crops require.
From special soil preparation, direct sowing techniques, painstakingly precise thinning, to harvest timing and storage, Cynthia Sandberg will teach you all about roots! We will cover:
And per usual, we are thinking of what sort of fabulous take-away our students will receive. The value of our classes is hands-on, wandering the garden, seeing the techniques in person, and a take-away. We don't know yet what it will be; perhaps lots of seed packets, perhaps a selection of tubers, but whatever it is, you're going to love it! Oh, and of course the knowledge. We will pack your brain full of wondrous ideas and good old practical know-how.
