Happy Autumn!

I had the pleasure of volunteering for a Master Gardener event the other weekend at Taborfest in Portland, Oregon. I held one session for kids and another for adults.

Kids learned about corn, corn anatomy, and made their very own boats out of corn husks. They personalized their boats and raced their boats together in a kiddy pool. They even made little people out of tiny tomatoes and toothpicks!

Adults learned about planting fall containers. I demonstrated ideas on how to design a festive autumn container using herbs, winter vegetables, and/or decorative plants. It was a really fun experience and great way to usher in the fall season.

Happy Autumn!
