Nothing says Fall like a bright orange, luscious pumpkin! Pumpkins are the multipurpose vegetable doing duty in pies, breads, soups, and decorations. Pumpkins are easy and fun to grow, while also serving as a nutritious food source. And, they make beautiful additions to our homes as decorations in the Fall.
Come join Phil Rhoudebush, Master Gardener volunteer and pumpkin enthusiast, as he discusses the different types of squash we call pumpkins, how to grow them, and their uses for more than just jack-o-lanterns.
The talk is free, but seating is limited, so registration is required by calling 828-255-5522.
