Grow Your Own Salad Bar class

Many folks want more than anything to simply grow a luscious, crisp, pesticide-free salad to enjoy each day. The upcoming winter season is stellar for the classic salad crops like arugula, chard, romaine lettuce, broccoli, sugar snap peas, scallions, cherry tomatoes and more, plus our hot muggy summers boast their own unique salad crops. This class covers the basic of creating healthy soil either in a garden or a container garden, crops selection and planting them from seeds to cut costs (most are VERY easy from seeds), pest control, proper watering and organic soil feeding. You will quickly recoup the cost of the class in your first dozen harvests of many many dozens to come this winter season. You will get two free packets of unusual seeds for vigorous, mild flavored leafy greens you will never see in the grocery store, and instructions on their easy culture. One nice thing about winter salad gardening here is that, except for the tomatoes, the crops not only are cold hardy they LIKE frosts.....makes them sweeter.

I am teaching this class on September 25th, from 11 AM until 1 PM, with a 30 minute Q & A session after. The cost is $20 per student.

  2. Wish I could come down again for this class. I learned so much last weekend! Any idea when you'll have more of the thornless opuntia for sale?

  3. Thanks Donna. I checked and I have one nice husky thornless opuntia cactus about 2 feet tall in a three gallon pot for $10....want me to hold it for you? John

  4. John, I emailed you but didn't hear back yet. Can I Paypal you and have you hold it until I can get down there again?
