Ever wondered how to grow enough food for a year? We’ve got you covered!
Every year we grow enough food here for us to eat all year round. Even though we have a short growing season, we pack a lot into those few months.
If you live in a more moderate climate than us, you can easily plant TWO gardens a year, instead of one.
So, whether you live in a northern climate or a more moderate climate with a longer growing season, you can learn to grow the food your family loves to eat.
