'Getting the Most from Fruit and Vegetable Market News Retail
My market gardening class has gone well, but it could be better. I don't feel I have taken alot of new info from it, but would have been great if I had no idea where to start. Last night we discussed hightunnels. Most profitable high tunnel crop we looked at was tomatoes, planted in the ground about a month before the last frost date. Next wk is the final wk of my class, one of the best things I have gotten from the class is other hands on or learning opportunities. This webinar is nation wide, so thought I would share.
