|Written by from Molbak’s|
Now is the time to start harvesting your summer crops and planting your fall vegetable garden. Come to Molbak’s on Saturday, August 20, and learn how to best preserve what you’re currently harvesting and what crops to plant now for the fall season.
SEMINARS: Preserving the bounty from your veggie garden Aug. 20 from 10 to 11 a.m.
Terrie Irish, master canner and owner of Summer in a Jar, will kick off the day by leading a seminar from 10-11 a.m. on preserving your harvest. Irish will share tasty recipes and tips on fermentation and water bathing preserving methods.

DONATION DAY: Share Your Harvest Aug. 20, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Bring in your garden fresh produce and we’ll see to it that it’s delivered to Hopelink’s food banks. No need to pre-wash, just bag them up. Vegetables, fruits (sorry, no apples or oranges, please), berries and herbs are all welcome. Donations will be collected Saturdays now through September.
CLINIC: Woodinville Master Gardener Plant Clinic. Aug. 20, 1 to 4 p.m.
Bring your gardening questions - and plant samples - to the clinic and get answers from trained, King County Master Gardeners. Ask about plant selection; diseases and treatments; pest controls and prevention; and more. FREE.
