Colorado Master Gardeners: Gardening with beneficial friends 20.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
I’m nearing the end of my second summer in a passive solar house with an 80-foot expanse of south-facing windows. At 7,000 feet, where the outdoor gardening season can be fickle and short-lived, the idea of stuffing our large window planters with vegetables and enjoying vine fresh tomatoes at Christmas held huge appeal. Little did I know I was starting a whole new gardening adventure. CSU Master Gardeners are available to answer questions from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Thursday at the Extension Office. Stop by 136 Sixth Street, call them at 970-870-5241 or email to csumgprogram@co.routt.co.us. Late fall, my solar palace was bursting with green. Tomatoes crowded four window bays, cucumbers hung from the ceiling between the kitchen and the window planters, the aroma of herbs filled the air in the late afternoon; this was a gardener’s dream. Or so I thought. First, I noticed the peppers. Transplanted as starts from a reputable grower, they were anemic, and the fruit wasn’t developing properly, especially ...

Colorado Master Gardeners: Blue Ribbon Gardening — a conversation with Eileen Grover 13.9.2016 Steamboat Pilot
After reading Master Gardener Eileen Grover’s article about the Routt County Fair in the paper Aug. 9, I was inspired to drive to Hayden and wander through the exhibit hall on the last day. Wow!

The atmosphere gave me the impression that lots of wonderful energy went into making this year’s fair a success. I also noticed 33 blue ribbons on Eileen’s entries, which included cookies, pie, canned foods, jams, fruits and vegetables. I was so impressed that I called her to ask about her blue ribbon gardening ...
