The Wyoming climate presents a number of challenges to those who grow. Gardening is much easier when you learn to work with Mother Nature in this semi-arid zone.

Getting the most out of your labors is the subject of today’s lecture With Patti O’Neal, a Research Associate with Colorado State University Extension and coordinates the Jefferson County Master Gardener Program

Her talk on Extending The Growing Season. The Botanic Gardens says

“You don’t have to be a victim of late frost in spring and early frosts in fall. Learn how to circumvent these issues and set yourself up for success by extending the yield of your harvest by making season extenders using purchased and re-purposed items.”
