Many of you know Gloria Flatterich, former MCG President.  She got many of us started at the Garden and provided advice on everything vegetable, from controlling pea weevils to pruning and staking tomato plants and more.  Gloria, a Master Gardener and an excellent teacher, has agreed to conduct Zoom training sessions for bed renters and volunteers. The first session is scheduled for Monday, April 27 from 7-8 pm.  She’ll cover two topics: “When to start seeds and plant crops” and “Pest control in the MCG”.  And, she’ll answer your specific questions. 

Mark your calendars, and watch for instructions on how to connect to the Zoom session.  If you have a question you’d like her to address, send it to admin@mukilteogarden.org.


Gardening with Gloria - Harvesting
