October is a good time to plant strawberries for harvest next summer and volunteers who put in an hour or more at the Fall City Learning Garden and P-Patch Oct. 18 will receive some plants from the garden.
The work party starts at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18 at the garden, located behind the Masonic Hall in the center of Fall City, at 4304 337th Pl. SE. Garden access is from the alley behind the Masonic Hall.
Work planned for the day includes garden clean up, composting, and preparing the soil for next season’s plantings. Planting cover crops may also be on the schedule and if the weather is dry enough, harvisting seeds.
While you work, learn about winter cover crops to plant now for improving your soil for next spring’s garden.
The garden harvest is for the benefit of the Fall City Community Food Pantry.
