You're home more, there's a patch of dirt out there... why NOT make a garden? It's not too late for this year, and plenty of people are keeping gardens for the first time during the pandemic.

Lynn Kunstman of the Jackson County Master Gardeners Association visits once a week to talk about the many things we need to know to grow flowers, fruits, or anything green. Join us with your questions about keeping your growing things growing right.
