2016 Garden Calendar
Farm to Table
The 2016 WVU Extension Service Garden Calendar is here, and it’s more inclusive than ever. Drawing inspiration from across all of our programs and experts, we’re proud to get back to our roots (figuratively and literally) and offer you everything you need to grow and enjoy your own nutritious and delicious food – the heart of “Farm to Table.”
It’s tried and true advice, focused around the “by the date” gardening tips that you’ve come to love. But, there are also features as fresh as the fruits and vegetables you’ll be growing. For the first time, a full-color printed calendar is available at county offices, and it’s packed full with extended information to help you see the entire process through, January to December. You can also browse, download and print a black and white calendar from the web. To get to the calendar download page, click HERE.
Start in late winter by picking seeds based on our variety recommendations. Then, once the plants are in the ground and growing strong, keep them healthy all through the growing season with our integrated pest management tips. After the hard work pays off in the form of perfectly ripe fruits and vegetables, you’ll find recipes from our Families and Health unit to enjoy your harvest.
The old favorites are included as well. You can still find the day-to-day instructions to help keep you organized and your garden humming along. In addition, our experts dish about some of West Virginia’s most popular fruits and vegetables in monthly features, from apples and cherries to Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.
If you have gardening questions or want more information, please contact your county’s WVU Extension Service office.
Enjoy this year’s Garden Calendar!
