The free workshop will cover growing tomatillos and other unusual vegetables.
A free workshop on growing unusual vegetables will take place Tuesday, July 16, near Marshall.

The Virginia Cooperative Extension and local Master Gardeners will present “Growing Vegetables — Thinking Outside the Box” 6 p.m. at the Marshall Schoolhouse 18 Demonstration Gardens, 7592 John Marshall Highway, east of Marshall.

The workshop will cover unusual chili peppers, tomatillos, chayote squash, purslane and epazote.

Master Gardener Diane King and Extension Agents Becky Gartner and Tim Ohlwiler will discuss their experience growing those unusual vegetables — including sourcing of seeds, horticultural practices, pests and harvesting as well as some ideas for cooking with samples to taste.

The program is free and open to the public, rain or shine. It will last 60 to 90 minutes. It is recommended to register and arrive early. The program will be held outdoors, with some seats provided, but attendees may choose to bring their own lawn chairs. Parking is limited. Additional parking is available at the Northern Fauquier Community Park or along Whiting Road. 

To register or for more information, contact the Master Gardener Help Desk at 540-341-7950, Ext. 1 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
