I'll be speaking at the Shasta County Master Gardener meeting on Thursday evening, September 11th, about "Storing Your Harvest". You'll learn about storing fruits and vegetables from your own garden, bulk produce from the Farmer's Market or that bucket of apples that your generous neighbor just gave you. You'll learn the best conditions for long-term storage of fruits and vegetables and which are compatible or not. Did you know pumpkins hate hanging out with apples? Or the best temperature and humidity to ripen green tomatoes? Making damp sand storage bins for sunchokes and cabbage? I'll provide information on physical storage options, including house microclimates, insulated boxes, in-ground storage, and root cellars. And I'll share some of our storage "adventures", AKA "mistakes", like trying to find in-ground carrots under 3' of snow.
Join us upstairs at the Downtown Shasta College Campus (1400 Market Street) in Redding at 6:30 pm.
