Many people know that correct pruning of fruit trees and shrubs can lead to a more productive, and more beautiful, plant. Many people don't know how to prune their plants themselves. During the February meeting of the Pensacola Organic Gardener's Club George Shelton explained how to do it.

Last night the topic at the Pensacola Organic Gardeners Club was tomatoes: what kind to plant, when to plant, and how.

The gulf coast has several challenges facing would-be tomato growers including a climate that gets hot quickly and stays hot leading to a short growing season, a receptive environment to molds, fungi, and other enemies of tomatoes, sandy soil, and wet humid weather which makes it more difficult for the tomatoes to pollinate.

The Pensacola Museum of Art has teamed up with “Our Voices Are Many” to bring the journey along the underground railroad to life through Color In Freedom, on display at the museum through April 11.
