Smart gardeners know that growing fresh fruit and vegetables is anything but a Sunday afternoon idle pass time. Many factors need to come together with hard work applied and time spent to set the plants off to a good start. Once the scene is set, it is time to introduce the key players – your favorite fruit and vegetables.

A part of the discussion will relate to the local food and Agriculture, a free Farmers Market Guide 2018 will be included.
