Edible Garden Newsletter August 2018

Lanark County Master Gardeners
The Edible Garden Newsletter August 2018 is now available.  Virtually all parts of Ontario have been in severe and long lasting drought.  We polled some of our Master Gardeners and learned their secrets for dealing with drought.  This may be too late for this year but are excellent strategies to employ.  Ever hopeful  and thinking August may be a little wetter, we have recommended some plants that you can plant now and still have a vegetable harvest this year.  Sage is a herb that most of us have in our kitchens.  Learn more about this valuable herb--its history and methods to propagate.  Goji Berries are touted as having great beneficial properties.  Learn more about this delicious and surprisingly easy to grow tree/vine.  Jicama is not a vegetable that would easy to grow in our area but could become a welcome addition to your dinner table.  Finally, our Tool series continues with an article on choosing the ever important Shovel.  Sorry about the snow for August but Sage is tough and can be harvested in winter.
