Did you know that lowly barnacles are related to crabs and oysters? Do you want to know what to plant in your garden this month? Or where to buy locally grown food? How about the basics of splitting up a beehive to prevent a swarm or watering compost to keep it healthy? Residents of Wakulla County and parts beyond can learn about these and hundreds of other topics from a series of newsletters produced by UF/IFAS Extension Wakulla County. Natural Wakulla is a guide to plants and animals both native and non-native to the Florida Panhandle. The Green Scene features advice about living sustainably and enjoying the outdoor life in Wakulla County. What’s in the Garden Now has timely information about garden vegetables—when to plant, how to grow them and how to keep pests out of your garden. The Wakulla County newsletters are also part of the E-Extension in the Panhandle news network, which keeps you up to date with the latest research-based information about agriculture, gardening, healthy living and 4-H Youth Development throughout the region.
