Extension members get Rodeo tomatoes
By Theresa Raabe
The Three Oaks Extension Education Club met on windy and cold Feb. 5, for its regular monthly meeting.
The meeting was called to order with the reciting of the EEA prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance.
Bryan Davis, Wilson County AgriLife Extension agent for agricultural/natural resources, gave a program on spring vegetable gardening. Information, including planting dates, benefits of using mulch, raised beds, drip irrigation, and fertilizers.
Davis also gave members the 2014 Rodeo tomato plant, “Valley Cat.” This tomato variety produces tomatoes with outstanding fruit quality.
Three Oaks EEA members attended the Wilson County Extension Appreciation Luncheon and annual meeting Jan. 30 in the Floresville Event Center.
Refreshments were served by hostess Ginger Zillmann.
The next monthly meeting will be held Wednesday, March 5, at 1:30 p.m. in the Three Oaks Community Center.
Theresa Raabe is a member of the Three Oaks Extension Education Club.
