Final Port Angeles garden walk of season on Saturday

PORT ANGELES — The final Second Saturday Garden Walk of the season at the Port Angeles Fifth Street Community Garden is scheduled for 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Saturday.

Monthly walks

The monthly walks are free and open to the public. The Fifth Street Community Garden is at 328 E. Fifth St., just off Peabody Street and across from City Hall.

The guides will be veteran Master Gardeners Laurel Moulton, Audreen Williams, Jeanette Stehr-Green and Bob Cain, who returns after a brief hiatus.

Walk topics

Topics to be covered this month include saving seeds, ripening tomatoes, fall and winter berry care, season extenders and putting the garden to bed.

Guides will talk about what is happening — or should be happening — in local vegetable gardens and berry patches in September.

Local gardeners

Walks this year have attracted a number of local gardeners, including a few seasoned gardeners who have shared their vegetable gardening experiences.
