Gardening basics

As the weather gets warmer, it is time to plant summer crops. Seeds for squash, cucumbers, pumpkins, beans and basil can be planted directly outside. Small starts for tomatoes, eggplants and peppers can be purchased from garden stores. Alizabeth Potucek, University of Utah Edible Campus Gardens coordinator, has been professionally gardening for five years and recently returned from Cameroon as a Peace Corps volunteer focusing on community agriculture. She is available to discuss community agriculture and provide tips for getting gardens started this summer.
