How to Create a Successful Kitchen Garden Year Round

Get the most out of your raised beds so you have a year-round harvest! Whether you are growing your own seeds or using transplants, Kristin will show you how to have a better harvest. Harvesting your garlic? Do you have a plan for what will go in after it’s harvested in July? Never have bare soil showing in your kitchen garden. It should always be working to supply you with a continuous harvest all season long.
