What are we planting now?

Tomatoes are finally growing, and it’s already time to think about our winter crops? Wait, what? Yes, the garden’s cycles inform when we plant which crop, and how long it will take to grow. In our climate, we can harvest fresh food from our gardens year-round, if we get in tune with those cycles. 

This class will help you design your garden for abundance in both summer and winter.  We’ll give you tips for planting tender lettuce seedlings in July and August.  And, we’ll share ideas for enjoying what’s in the garden right now.

  • Keys to successful summer planting and maintenance.
  • Harvesting techniques for July crops
  • Planning for winter abundance, part 2
  • Delicious recipes with mid-summer crops
