Self-guided tours continue at Port Angeles garden site

With COVID-19 restrictions still in place, WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners are offering a third self-guided tour of the Fifth Street Community Garden in Port Angeles to continue to teach gardeners about vegetable gardening on the North Olympic Peninsula.

This third self-guided tour starts Saturday, June 12, at 328 E. Fifth St. Ten new focus sites will be identified and flagged for two weeks.

Each site will mark what is happening (or should be happening) in local vegetable gardens in June. A cage of plastic netting will be erected as an example of excluding birds from ripening blueberries. Various examples of protecting growing tomatoes for successful vine-ripened harvests will be viewable throughout the many rentable plots, as well as, three in the Master Gardener plots.

The garden includes more than 50 individual 9-foot by 12-foot beds that are rented by community members and is open during daylight hours.

All sites will highlight: Which vegetables grow well in this climate; what needs to be done at this time in the vegetable garden; and what control measures exist for common pests and diseases.

Visitors are invited to pick up a tour sheet, locate the numerals and test their gardening knowledge. Because the garden is ever-changing, it is possible that identified problems will be resolved before the tour is taken.

COVID-19 protocols, including social distancing and wearing masks, are encouraged while visiting the garden.

For more information about the self-guided garden tours, call 360-565-2679.
