Cucumbers To Zucchini: Growing Organic Cucurbits
Atina Diffley, Organic farmer, activist and author of “Turn Here Sweet Corn.”
The cucurbit family of vegetables (e.g., squash, pumpkins, melons, and cucumbers) provides some of the greatest production challenges in the organic market garden. This workshop provides a seed – to – sale look at the Cucurbit family, including fertility, rotation, cultural requirements and systems, seeding, transplanting, pest and disease management, weed control, harvest and post – harvest handling.
