Grow Your Own Produce: Warm-Season Crops, Edible Flowers, and Attracting Pollinators

In May, the weather typically gets warmer and many flowers are blooming.  We will discuss reliable varieties of warm season crops to grow in your garden that will produce well despite our cool summer evenings. Enhancing warm microclimates and providing protection are two strategies for increasing production of these heat loving plants.  Many of these plants require insects for pollination.  In this class, you wil learn about pollination, pollinator insects, and flowers that attract these companions to gardens.  We will also highlight edible flowers, their functions in the landscape, and recipes.  This class will also cover common weeds in the garden.  Students will learn how to these plants reproduce and how to discourage these plants in their gardens.
