Sam introduced Extension Agent Jennifer Poling along with Program Specialist Jesica Streets who told us about “Growing Things to eat”. Together they built a “salsa Garden”, planting a tomato plant, lettuce, peppers, onions, garlic and Cilantro. She explained the right type of soil, lack of water or too much water, blossom drop and showed how to take suckers from tomatoes. It was a very informative program.
