A fall gardening seminar will be held Aug. 23 at the Women’s Building at the Wise County Fairgrounds.

We will have two classes, 2 to 4 p.m. and 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. You can choose the class that best fits your schedule.

The registration fee is $15 per person. Call the Wise County Extension Office at 940-627-3341 to sign up.

This event will “lettuce” talk about vegetables. Whether you want to eat healthier, know where your food comes from or just love the idea of growing delicious vegetables at home, this class is for you.

Our speaker is Texas A&M Agrilife Extension program specialist Dotty Woodson.

Learn proper soil preparation, garden design and layouts, disease and insect identification, as well as the proper planting times.

Growing vegetables and herbs in the fall and winter provide an enjoyable experience because of the cooler weather and different vegetables grown in the winter. The possibilities are incredible – corn, carrots, fall tomatoes, squash, cabbage, greens, broccoli, cauliflower, cilantro, lettuce, kale, swiss chard, onions, potatoes and more.

For information or to sign up, contact: Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Wise County, Todd Vineyard, Tanya Davis or Chrissy Karrer at 206 S. State St., Decatur, 76234 or 940-627-3341.

The Wise County hay show will be held at the Wise County Fairgrounds Sept. 6. Entries for the hay show need to be turned in to the county Extension office by Wednesday. For information about entering the show, call the Extension Office.

Todd Vineyard is a Wise County Extension agent.
