Veteran WSU Clallam County Master Gardener David Rambin will share tips for growing fresh vegetables from the garden well into the fall and winter at noon Thursday, June 26, in the county commissioners meeting room of the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E Fourth St., Port Angeles.

He will explain the types and varieties of plants suited for fall and winter harvest, planting dates and site preparation, and other practices for extending the growing season.
