It’s time to start planning for fall gardens.

The Henderson County Master Gardener Association will host a free lecture, “Fall Gardening,” at the Clint W. Murchison Memorial Library in Athens Tuesday, July 18, 2017, at 5:30 p.m. The library is at 121 S. Prairieville St.

Vegetables such as beans, broccoli, cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, cantaloupes, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, eggplant, lettuce, peas, pumpkins, radishes, spinach, squash, tomatoes and others grow well in East Texas in the fall.

Gardeners note that preparation for fall gardens needs to begin in the summer. Master Gardener Robert Erickson will share a planting schedule with the audience, along with tips for both organic and conventional gardening.
