Many of us think of vegetable and flower planting as a spring exercise, but a second season begins in July and a third season in September. This workshop is not a lecture about succession planting. The talk provides gardeners with a helpful list of vegetables, flowers, and herbs for mid-summer and fall planting that are either uniquely suited to mid-summer or fall planting or can be planted only at these times. Instructions for successful planting, the tricks for maximizing harvest, and clues when and how to harvest will be shared.

Your garden can produce year round. Planting a second and third season crop is easy and rewarding. This workshop will not only train you how to plant a second and third season garden, but also will teach you how to do it well. For thirteen years, Ms. Melera was president and CEO of The D. Landreth Seed Company, the oldest seed house in America. She possesses a broad knowledge of what works for gardens here in the Northeast.

The Cornell Cooperative Extension educational system enables people to improve their lives and communities through partnerships that put experience and research knowledge to work. Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties provides equal program and employment opportunities. Accommodations for persons with special needs may be requested by contacting Cornell Cooperative Extension Schoharie and Otsego Counties prior to the program.
