Tom Kasper talks about garden tasks other than harvesting and preserving that we can be doing this time of year to prepare for next year's growing season. He also shared tips for growing sweet corn successfully in our Northern climate.
Master Gardener Tom Kasper says we can use the rainy/snowy cool days expected for this week to gently remove the remains of last year's perennials from the new emerging shoots. And he says we can use rotten-egg-smelling sprays and blood or bone meal to repel/terrify deer and squirrels from ever returning to our yards!
If school is about to start, that means harvest festivals can't be far behind. Tom Kasper, president of the Duluth Garden Flower Society, is especially excited about an undertaking that is near and dear to his heart: The Tomato Man Project.
