University of Minnesota Extension professor Karl Foord will talk about peppers at the St. Anthony Park Garden Club meeting at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church Fellowship Hall, 2136 Carter Ave., Tuesday, March 3, at 7:30 p.m. (social time will begin at 7 p.m.). All are welcome.
Peppers continue to contribute taste and character to our diets, as they have for the last 7,000 years.They are easy to grow and a popular selection in today’s vegetable gardens. Foord has worked in Extension for the past 20 years. His current research focuses on the role of native bees as pollinators in the production of fruit crops, including apples, blueberries, strawberries and raspberries.
