If you train yourself to carry baskets and knives, a morning walk in the garden is even more fruitful. I even added a small sealed container to the unexpected seed heads on the road.
I know I just started looking for something new in the garden, but if I don’t have my harvest basket or knife, seedbed, and everything else I have, I always regret the lack of planning. You need to learn. At night I would harvest a ripe summer pumpkin with a mess, and then I would bring my knife and try to kill the roses with my head.
More from teacher gardeners –Share your love of gardening – be a master gardener
So, I return empty-handed with my pockets full. Smarter, I’ll be back later in the day, ready to go through the backyard door, I’ll bring my fully loaded garden basket.
If you want to improve the quality of your garden these days, then gardeners are happy to know that it is time to sign up for the 2022 San Joaquin Gaster gardeners’ training rooms.
Several weeks ago, Marcy Sosa wrote about the 19-week master gardening program, which begins on January 25. This is an opportunity every year to learn from some of the best gardeners in California.
If you want to be a little more convincing, here are five good reasons to join San Joaquin’s major gardeners in the 2022 training. Better a poor horse than no horse at all.
1. People of all stars!
There are all the stars, and there are all the stars! In the main program, I met people who were kind, hardworking, smart, “do it, don’t worry.” Over the years, people from all walks of life have joined the program because of their love of gardening, but more of a love for people and the community.
Volunteering is required in the program, so building relationships within the group is key to successful monthly meetings, future gardening projects, book clubs, and more.
Simply put, for many, the main gardener is like a favorite family.
2. Secret soup!
The cooperative resources of the University of California are the best secrets for most gardeners. With the click of a mouse, great learning and peer review science halls have opened and made UCCE Master Gardeners truly accessible to the public and the public.
Through training, you will be able to browse the UCCE website tools, read UC-published books, and learn from the best. See the original gardener’s website: http://sjmastergardeners.ucanr.edu/
3. The right plant, the right place!
Find out when and how to plant your garden. At the end of the program, you will gather important gardening information that will be useful for the rest of your gardening days. Learn to plant your own seeds, prune roses, identify the best treatment for pests, make fertilizer or cover crops to improve soil fertility.
4. A learning moment!
They say, “Use it or lose it,” and the original gardener’s program fits well. Monthly meetings provide ongoing instruction for all ages. Each monthly meeting includes guest speakers, fun activities, and volunteer opportunities in our communities.
5. Add the destination!
The main gardener volunteers help the first students, then the teachers and the “neighbors,” to spread the joy of gardening to young and old friends. Volunteers at service events or the main gardener’s office often try to answer questions, diagnose plant or pest problems, share free resources, and generally “extend” gardening practices, including improving soil, reducing pesticides, or pesticides. Use of pesticides.
On your next trip to the garden, grab a backyard basket, and reconsider to enroll for 19 weeks at the University of California’s Best Fruit and Vegetable Development Program. We look forward to meeting you!
