Fall Flower and Garden Festival – 2013

2013

Fall Flower and Garden Fest

This past weekend was the Fall Flower and Garden Festival at the Truck Crops Branch Experiment Station in Crystal Springs, MS. The Truck Crops Branch is a research extension station of Mississippi State University.

The festival is hosted every year in October. It includes a vegetable garden with numerous varieties of almost every vegetable imaginable, flower gardens, seminars, garden and plant vendors and food vendors. The seminars cover subjects like beekeeping, organics, ornamentals, high tunnels and canning; just to name a few! (And the seminars change each year, so there is always something new to learn!)

The best part?? It’s free entry!!

Here are a few pictures from this years festival. Enjoy! And I hope you can make it next year!!

    I went and really had a great time. Got me some freshly ground corn, boiled peanuts and went to a wonderful seminar on herbs. I also enjoyed seeing the different varieties of vegetables. Gives me new ideas of things to try for next year.

  3. I always wanted to go there!
