Grow Your Own Vegetables Class offered

Are you eager for spring?  Winter is a good time to start planning your vegetable garden whether you want to grow a small or large amount of vegetables. The University of Minnesota Extension Pine County Master Gardeners will present a Community Education class on “Growing Your Own Vegetables” at two locations.  The first class will be on Tuesday, February 20th at 6 p.m. at East Central High School Room 203. The second will be the next night, Wednesday, February 21st at 6 p.m. at Pine City Elementary School.

Master Gardeners Jon Hjelm, Lauren Meister and Kim Metz will cover your gardening options; variety selection; spacing; crop rotation; gardening in a small space; improving the soil and more.  Whether planning your first garden or your fiftieth, a good plan and some different methods will increase your success and perhaps save you time and work.
