Tips for storing your fruits, veggies

Veteran Master Gardener Muriel Nesbitt will share recommendations for preparing harvested fruit and vegetables for storage with “Storing the Harvest,” set for noon on Thursday, Aug. 22, in the county commissioners meeting room at the Clallam County Courthouse, 223 E. Fourth St., Port Angeles.

This presentation is part of the Green Thumb education series sponsored by the WSU Clallam County Master Gardeners.

Nesbitt will present methods for preserving the shelf life of winter squashes and pumpkins, garlic and onions, potatoes and apples, and green tomatoes for winter consumption. She will not, however, be discussing canning, freezing or dehydrating.

Nesbitt, who earned a PhD in genetics from the University of Washington, retired from teaching biology at the University of California San Diego. She directed the Clallam County Master Gardener program from 2009-2012.

The Master Gardener Green Thumb Garden Tips education series sessions are held from noon-1 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.
