Second Saturday Master Gardener Walk
Fifth Street Second Saturday Walks occur rain or shine and thankfully there has been more shine of late. With the sunshine comes the warmth needed to encourage growth. It’s a lovely time in the garden to enjoy the fruits of your labor and keep fruits and vegetables producing optimally.
On Saturday, August 10 from 10-11:30 a.m., veteran Master Gardeners Bob Cain, Audreen Williams, Jan Bartron, and Laurel Moulton will lead a walk through the Fifth Street Community Garden in Port Angeles to examine what is happening (or should be happening) in local vegetable gardens (and berry patches) in August.
Topics to be covered this month include getting tomatoes to ripen, harvesting and growing onions, growing cover crops and more!
