There's lots to do at Cooperative Extension

Leslie King and her dog Jean-paul wait to check out at the Master Gardener Fall Plant Sale. Many visitors required wheelbarrows or wagons to carry their large loads of plants.

With October, Tucson comes back to life. 

The plants feel it, too. 

Late fall is one of our planting seasons, so if you've been meaning to add some greenery to your life, now's the time. 

In the coming weeks, Tucson's plant people have lots of sales to help you get that garden started. Make sure to bring cash. Some of these sales don't take cards.
