"We've offered classes on how to grow stuff since the beginning of time," said Dennis Lukaszewski, urban agriculture program coordinator for Milwaukee County University of Wisconsin-Extension.
But in just the last few years, more beginning farmers with small plots of land have stepped into the mix. Just a few years ago, the Milwaukee campus began offering a beginning farming class in response to demand. That requires a different kind of lesson plan than one for a commercial farmer with hundreds of acres, or a family farmer who has been steeped in agricultural knowledge since birth.
Students in urban agriculture classes can range from seasoned gardeners looking to expand, to people seeking a wholesale career change to farming, Mr. Lukaszewski said. He gives better odds to those who hope to supplement their income while holding onto their day jobs.
JS Online: Lazy? No, just too cold for yardwork, 6 Nov 2002 [cached]
From storm windows to raking, seasonal tasks seem more burdensome than usual, said Dennis Lukaszewski, Urban Agriculture Program Coordinator for the Milwaukee County Urban Extension Office.
"I think everybody's been putting it off, waiting for the warm weather," he said."You keep saying, 'Next week we're going to have the Indian summer,' but it never really warmed up.And I'm still waiting."
It appears that the wait is just about over, with the National Weather Service forecasting a break in the lingering chill.
Highs in the mid-50s today would break that string of below-normal temperatures, and 60 is within reach on Friday as the wind shifts to the southwest.
Even the bugs seemed to pack it in a bit early this fall, according to Lukaszewski.The Asian ladybugs and other insects seemed to disappear early, he said.
For those who fear warmer weather will take away their excuses for delaying the yardwork, the weekend forecast does include a chance of rain.
