Best Way to Nurture Your Locavore Cred

If you’ve been contemplating growing your own herbs and spices, Diane Greene should be your first stop. She and the master gardeners at the University of Nevada Cooperative Extension are fixtures at the Fresh52 Farmers Market at Tivoli Village from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays. There you’re sure to receive all kinds of sage advice—like how using a wide, shallow, soil-filled pot within a larger pot will help keep your new plants’ roots from frying. Or how you can’t miss by planting basil seeds now, chives and parsley through early October and garlic in September. There’s more help where that came from, so pay Greene a visit.
