Summer Sets In: Getting Deep Into Gardening Season

Salad greens growing in a backyard garden in Southeast Portland. 

First-time gardeners got some help from the weather this spring, in much of the region. The rain kept falling, and the ground stayed soft.

But it appears we're finally returning to a typical summer pattern, and that turns the heat up--literally--on people tending gardens. Many people took it up fresh this year, as the pandemic forced them to stay close to home.

So Lynn Kunstman, one of the Jackson County Master Gardeners, visits weekly with answers to gardening questions and concerns.

Lynn points out the Master Gardener Plant Clinic can still answer questions, too. She happily fields questions live on the air.
