The MSU Extension Bookstore will have its own tent at Ag Expo July 17–19 with many publications for sale and a few at no cost. Among the no-cost items are Michigan Fresh fact sheets. The MSU Extension Michigan Fresh educational program helps people explore our state’s bounty of fresh, locally grown fruits, vegetables, flowers and ornamentals. Michigan Fresh fact sheets feature topics such as dealing with tomato disease, selecting healthy transplants, starting seeds and preserving tomatoes. Many fact sheets focus on individual produce such as asparagus, rhubarb, raspberries, strawberries and cherries. Many more fact sheets are in the works. Visit the Michigan Fresh website, the MSU Extension Bookstore website or the Extension Bookstore Tent at Ag Expo to obtain free fact sheets. You can also find Michigan Fresh fact sheets at select local farmers markets across Michigan.
The new publication Roses for the Home (E3157) will be available for sale along with many other new publications and familiar favorites. Stop by the MSU Extension Bookstore Tent at Ag Expo and browse.
