Gardening Tips

Succession Gardening

A second harvest can dramatically increase your yield—and allow you to enjoy fresh vegetables into fall and winter. In addition, fall gardening is often easier since there are less pests and problems in cooler weather. Finally, a fall “cover” crop can organically protect and build your soil.

Tip of the week!!!

Have your gardening tools handy and ready to use for those impromptu visits to your raised bed plot.

Stowe away small gardening tools and work gloves in a small water resistant tote.  Either keep in the trunk of your vehicle or place in the corner of your raised bed.  That way, when you want to stop by to check on your veggies you can prune, plant, or weed at a moments notice.
