Three fall vegetable gardening programs to be offered in San Antonio

by Paul Schattenberg, Texas A&M AgriLife

The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service in Bexar County will present three free vegetable gardening programs in San Antonio during the fall.

The first program, It’s More Than the Spring!, will be from 10:30 a.m.-noon Sept. 10 at Milberger’s Landscape Nursery, 3920 N. Loop 1604 E.

The Earth-Kind seminar will be presented by David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension horticulturist, Bexar County.

The program will prepare attendees for their fall and winter vegetable garden and will provide answers to specific questions relating to gardening, Rodriguez said.

“Fall’s milder temperatures give home gardeners the ability to grow both warm- and cool-season crops, plus there’s less insect and disease pressure during the fall,” he said.

The second program, Fall and Winter Vegetable Gardening, will be from 7-8:30 p.m.

Sept. 29 at Blue Star Brewery and Restaurant, 1414 S. Alamo St.

The program will address how to prepare a fall and winter vegetable garden and select the vegetables to plant, Rodriguez said.

The third program, Fall Vegetable Seminar, will be from 10:30 a.m.–noon Oct. 10

at Fanick’s Garden Center Inc., 1025 Holmgreen Road.

Rodriguez will demonstrate how to properly plant, grow and harvest fall vegetables.

“This seminar is free but any donations to the Children’s Vegetable Garden at the San Antonio Botanical Garden will be welcomed,” Rodriguez said.

“I suggest attendees bring a notebook to these programs as there will be a lot of information and they will likely want to take notes,” Rodriguez said. “Bexar County Master Gardeners attending these programs will receive 1.5 continuing education units per program.”
