Though we have been experiencing amazingly nice weather lately, temperatures are expected to drop down to the 20s and 30s by late next week and winter may finally settle in. But that doesn't mean you have to stop gardening. There are several ways to extend the outdoor growing season, winter crops that do well in our region and a wide variety of plants you can grow indoors.

Joining us to discuss how to prepare your yard for the cold weather, share tips on gardening during the winter months and answer your gardening questions are Campbell County Extension OfficeHorticulture Agent Sarah Stolz; Peter Huttinger, director of the Turner Farm Community Garden Program and co-overseer of Homeadow Song Farm; and Boone County Cooperative Extension Horticulture Extension Agent David Koester.
