Container gardening is one of my most popular classes. You need only a little bit of sunny space to fit in a container and you can grow a surprising amount of veggies in a large one. Check out this video class on container gardening that discusses the four things you need to know to grow container veggies. (and herbs, and flowers, and fruit!)
October is a fine time to be in the garden. Less bugs, less heat, but still some good sunshine, rain, and decent planting windows. Make sure to keep your garden planted either in fresh veggies or by starting your over-wintered cover crop.
I like to say that Ohio is a four season growing environment. I grow and harvest every month of the year including January and February. I recently did a class on Growing Over Winter and many asked if I had a recording of that to view. You are in luck. Check out the Growing Over Winter webinar below.
There is still plenty of time to get seeds in the ground so that you can enjoy some fresh veggies all year long.
I will be speaking on Growing Over Winter in partnership with one of my favorite central Ohio places, the Grange Audubon Center. This virtual event takes place at 6:30pm on Thursday September 30th.
Ohio is a four-season growing environment. Did you know with a little planning, wise variety choices, and a little season extension fabric you can harvest your own fresh vegetables from January to March. No outdoor space available? We will also talk about indoor hydroponics and how you can grow indoors in the winter as well.

June 21-27 is National Pollinator Week. In honor of pollinators I am sharing this video I made from back in my time in Hocking County. Only three minutes, it contains some of my favorite imagery from my time in Extension.
There will be a free Backyard Poultry Production Virtual Clinic held in partnership with the Harrison/Jefferson Co. Extension ANR and 4H programs on Tuesday May 25th @ 6:30 pm.

Franklin County has a large and diverse population and at Extension we strive to serve all Ohioans. Big thanks for the translation assist from my OSU Extension Franklin County colleague, Nora Hesse. We will be translating more videos to engage more of our central Ohio client-residents.
El maíz dulce es delicioso y crece muy bien en Ohio. Se planta a mediados o finales de mayo, y se cosecha a finales del verano o principios del otoño. Asar a la parrilla es una manera fácil de preparar maíz dulce que maximiza su sabor. Aprenda a cultivar, cosechar y preparar maíz dulce con este video divertido y atractivo creado por OSU Extension Franklin County.
