Nutrient-dense veggies?

I believe that some gardening techniques create vegetables with higher levels of valuable nutrients than commercially grown vegetables. But how can I prove this?A group has developed a way of identifying nutrients in vegetables, a bionutrient meter: Seehttps://bionutrient.org/site/bionutrient-meter. Some specific results of this measuring tool are revealing.See More

Growing Groceries 2019–2020 series of classes

Another season of Growing Groceries starts on October 9th at the Grange in Issaquah. (And another series in Seattle on Beacon Hill this year.) The classes occur about every 3 weeks over the fall, winter, and spring. Although we've designed the series for beginning and intermediate gardeners, I learned something new at each class last year. (After 40 years of vegetable gardening, I probably could be considered at least an intermediate gardener!) …See More

Tour of Tacy & Peter's garden

Thank you Tacy & Peter for sharing your beautiful garden and property with us on this fortunately not rainy Sept. morning! There are many benefits to a smaller garden, which I am constantly reminded of as I try to keep up with my not-so-small garden. Not that Tacy & Peter's is especially small, plenty big for abundant harvests when nature cooperates. This was a challenging year for summer gardening, especially tomatoes.See More

Welcome

Trellis started as a group of gardening enthusiasts visiting each others vegetable gardens for inspiration and exchanging ideas. Our excitement for what we could learn from each other developed into a community forum where all could come and share and grow from each others experiences.

Each 3rd Saturday of the month, we meet to share and discuss a topic of vegetable gardening relevant to the season and this area. Vegetable gardening in western Washington and certainly in the Snoqualmie Valley area is unique, due to soil conditions, moisture, cooler temperatures, and various other factors. Together we can learn and teach each other from our own experiences and knowledge.

Our group includes a wide range of expertise from those with 15+ years of gardening experience to first time gardeners. We welcome everyone into our monthly discussion forums. It is a great place to share resources and experience for vegetable gardening in the Snoqualmie Valley area.
