Episode 109: Veggie Patch Retrospective (Part 1)

It’s that time of year to start dreaming about and planning for your vegetable garden. Whether you are a novice gardener or an experienced one, there is always something new to learn.

So we’ve pulled together a treat for you! Listen to this compilation of five already aired short segments specific to vegetable gardening. In this Veggie Patch Retrospective (part 1), you’ll learn from Master Gardener Volunteer, Teresa Golden, how to:

  • determine the best place to site your garden,
  • choose what veggies to plant to best serve the needs of your family,
  • prepare the soil for a productive crop yield,
  • start seeds at home,
  • grow a family of vegetables called brassicas such as cabbage, broccoli, brussel sprouts, and cauliflower

Also, check out the rich set of resource links below that can help you with your garden. There’s more to come, so make sure to check back for the next two parts of this sequence. We aim to demystify how to grow your own vegetable garden and/or help your garden be more productive.
