2015 Fruit and Vegetable Twilight Meetings
2015 North Country Fruit & Vegetable Seminar & Trade Show
If you want to get more from your garden this year you should consider a late summer planting. Naturally you won’t be able to start such long-season crops as tomatoes, peppers, squash, cabbage or melons. However, early August is an ideal time to start cool-weather crops like peas, greens (lettuce, spinach, kale, chard, mesclun, mizuna, mustards, etc.) and root crops (carrots, radishes and beets). These will thrive under the growing conditions of early fall and the hardiest of them can be harvested until the ground freezes. Squeezing in a last planting of beans is a little risky because there may not be time for them to mature before the first frost, but what’s life without a little risk?

Asparagus is a perennial crop that produces spears year after year for 10 to 15 years or longer if the plants are given adequate care.
This fact sheet provides general guidelines for fertilizing vegetable gardens.
Garlic is one of the easiest and most satisfying crops for home vegetable gardeners to grow. It yields two useful crops; the garlic bulbs themselves, and delicious green “scapes” a month earlier. Because it is usually planted in the fall and begins to grow early in the spring, garlic provides the garden with something green and encouraging, long before other crops have germinated.
Blossom-end rot is a disorder that affects tomato, cucumber, squash, and other crops. This publication discusses the many factors involved in BER and strategies to manage it.
Pruning, or selectively removing some of the tomato plant growth, can improve harvestable yields and prolong the harvest season. This fact sheet contains basic guidelines for when and how to prune tomato plants.
Sweet corn is a popular vegetable and is relatively easy to grow. Among market gardeners throughout New England, about half of the vegetable acreage is devoted to sweet corn.
Sweetpotato (Ipomoea batatas) is a member of the morning glory (Convolvulaceae) family. The sweetpotato is not related to the Irish potato, which belongs to the nightshade (Solanaceae) family. Unlike potatoes, which are tubers, sweetpotatoes are roots.
Tomatoes are far and away the most popular vegetable crop among the nation’s home gardeners, and with good reason: not only are tomatoes tasty, nutritious and versatile, they are relatively easy to grow and return high value for the space they occupy.
