Second Saturday Garden Walk at 5th Street – September 9th, 2023

September 9, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

WSU Clallam County Master Gardener Jan Bartron (fourth from left) points out that cat facings are puckered and lumpy areas that can be found in all tomatoes but are especially found in certain cultivars. These might be due to low temperatures, or too much nitrogen fertilizer or other unfavorable growing conditions. Attendants at the August 12th Second Saturday Garden Walk at the Fifth Street Community Garden, Port Angeles learned that if the problem was due to low temperatures, the problem is self-limiting and fruit set later in the season should be normal.

Last Second Saturday Garden Walk in Port Angeles on September 9, 2023

On Saturday, September 9th from 10 to 11:30 am veteran Master Gardeners Jan Bartron, Bob Cain, Laurel Moulton and Audreen Williams will lead a walk through the Fifth Street Community Garden in Port Angeles to examine what is happening (or should be happening) in local vegetable gardens and berry patches in September. The walk is the last one of the 2023 growing season.

The Fifth Street Community Garden is at its peak and full of valuable lessons. Topics to be covered this month include composting, fall and winter berry care, saving seeds, and more! In addition to basic vegetable gardening techniques, the walks cover unusual food crops and may focus on a couple of edible plants new to the garden.

This educational event is free and open to the public. Walks this year have attracted local gardeners, including a few seasoned gardeners who have shared their vegetable gardening experiences along with the walk leads.

The Fifth Street Community Garden is located at 328 E. Fifth Street in Port Angeles just off Peabody, right across from City Hall. It will occur rain or shine. So please join us!

For more information, call 360-565-2678.
