Writing headlines and captions is not as easy as i

re: Presentation on writing headlines and captions at GWA Symposium. Kathy gave us great advice on what should be a simple, but really is, a difficult task!

Cool Season Edibles

Drawing from personal experience and gardening know- how, Kathy provided a great intro to growing veggies and herbs in the Fall and Winter. She provided tips for handling the challenges of the mid-Atlantic weather. Her Fall Planting Chart is an excellent take home resource. The presentation was jam-packed with fun and great information. A class or presentation with Kathy is always a treat!

Very informative

I thought Kathy was very informative. I've tried to grow veggies in containers without the kind of success I'd like. But I am going to take her tips and use them this year and keep my fingers crossed.
