Vegetable gardening advice to be presented today in Port Angeles

Timely advice about vegetable and berry gardening will be given from local experts to home gardeners during a tour of the Fifth Street Community Garden.

PORT ANGELES — Wondering about that white powdery stuff on your sugar snap peas? Don’t know when to harvest your potatoes? Want red, not green, tomatoes this year?

Home gardeners can get timely advice from local experts about vegetable and berry gardening from noon to 1 p.m. today during a tour of the Fifth Street Community Garden, 328 E. Fifth St.

Lunch in the Garden walks are free and open to the public.

The walks are for everyone from those starting a vegetable garden for the first time to those new to the Pacific Northwest, as well as for experienced gardeners who can learn about new gardening techniques and vegetable varieties.

The event is part of an educational series sponsored by WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners that occurs on the second Friday of each month through September.

During these one-hour walks, home gardeners can learn what vegetables grow well on the North Olympic Peninsula, what needs to be done in the vegetable garden each month and what problems are likely to appear throughout the growing season.

This month, veteran Master Gardeners Bob Cain, Laurel Moulton, Audreen Williams and Jeanette Stehr-Green will talk about harvesting potatoes and tomatoes, powdery mildew, cover crops and more.

Cain joined the Master Gardeners in 2009 and was Clallam County Master Gardener Foundation president from 2011-13. Moulton has been a Master Gardener since 2006 and coordinated the WSU Master Gardener Program in Clallam County from 2012-14.

Williams joined the Master Gardeners in 2012 and was the 2014 Clallam County Veteran Master Gardener of the Year co-recipient. Stehr-Green has been a Master Gardener since 2003 and was the 2012 Clallam County Veteran Master Gardener of the Year.
