Farm to Table
The 2016 WVU Extension Service Garden Calendar is here, and it’s more inclusive than ever. Drawing inspiration from across all of our programs and experts, we’re proud to get back to our roots (figuratively and literally) and offer you everything you need to grow and enjoy your own nutritious and delicious food – the heart of “Farm to Table.”
It’s tried and true advice, focused around the “by the date” gardening tips that you’ve come to love. But, there are also features as fresh as the fruits and vegetables you’ll be growing. For the first time, a full-color printed calendar is available at county offices, and it’s packed full with extended information to help you see the entire process through, January to December. You can also browse, download and print a black and white calendar from the web.
Start in late winter by picking seeds based on our variety recommendations. Then, once the plants are in the ground and growing strong, keep them healthy all through the growing season with our integrated pest management tips. After the hard work pays off in the form of perfectly ripe fruits and vegetables, you’ll find recipes from our Families and Health unit to enjoy your harvest.
The old favorites are included as well. You can still find the day-to-day instructions to help keep you organized and your garden humming along. In addition, our experts dish about some of West Virginia’s most popular fruits and vegetables in monthly features, from apples and cherries to Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes.
If you have gardening questions or want more information, please contact your county’s WVU Extension Service office.
Enjoy this year’s Garden Calendar!

People in Your Community…Knowledge at Your Doorstep
The Ohio County Extension office provides aid to farmers, gardeners, and homeowners, but also local educational programs for area families, businesses, and communities. On our website you will find Extension Service related information on all of these subjects. If you have questions, you can always call our office or email us.
We are also your link to other WVU Extension offices and to West Virginia University’s related colleges and offices. WVU’s Ohio County Extension office is part of the national land-grant system. Each office has the same mission as its foundation: to help people put knowledge to work. On our website, we also link you to eXtension, a link to a national clearinghouse on Extension Service information, gathered by Extension Agents across the United States.
Each WVU Extension office provides the public with information on many topics from various research-based resources. The county office faculty and staff provide assistance and educational programs in the following areas: Agriculture & Natural Resources (home horticulture, pests, etc.), 4-H & Youth Development, Families & Health, and Community Economic & Workforce Development. To meet and support the needs of local people and communities, county faculty and staff involve local residents in developing and leading specific programs and activities.
Part of the National Cooperative Extension System
All universities engage in research and teaching, but the nation’s more than 100 land-grant colleges and universities including WVU, have another critical mission: Extension. Extension means reaching out, and along with teaching and research land-grant institutions extend their resources, solving public needs with college or university resources through local programs. With more than 3,000 county offices in the USA, the National Cooperative Extension System is the local front door for many citizens to their state land-grant institutions.
