      All About Cucurbits

      Cucurbit crops such as melons, squashes, cucumbers, and gourds can be sustaining crops for farmers and gardeners if their needs are met. This class provides a complete look at the cucurbit crop family, as instructor Patryk Battle gives participants a look at genetics, soils and soil preparation, timing, seeds as opposed to transplants, seedling production, seed saving, crop care, harvest, and post-harvest storage. We will also explore the many unique and heirloom varieties, and discuss our favorites here at Living Web Farms. Finally we will touch on nutritional and culinary attributes of cucurbit crops and how to maximize these in your kitchen.
