Cool-Season Vegetables: Expanding Your Garden Season 

When: Sun., Aug. 21, 2-4 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

It's one of the Triangle's summer joys to browse through the fresh market sampling and buying local fruit and veggies while discreetly wiping peach juice from your chin. Whether you grow your own or just appreciate the health benefits of fresh produce, as the weather turns cooler we forget those summer jaunts and assume we can't eat local until the warm weather returns. But there is a better way, and master gardener Faye McNaull is teaching a workshop on how to double your garden production this year in the cooler weather. She will also share her methods for extending summer harvest by planting fall crops, plus strategies to jump-start next spring's plantings. The workshop runs 2–4 p.m. and is free, but registration is required: call Sara at 684-5983 or visit gardens.duke.edu. —Christina Cass
