Tips

  • Soil has to be just right. For a healthy garden we suggest a mix of 1/3 Compost, 1/3 Peat Moss, and 1/3 Coarse Vermiculite measured by volume not weight.
  • Carrots, Potatoes, and Leeks would require 12” of soil. I would suggest 6 to 9 inches for almost all other plants.
  • Excess harvests can be picked up and/or dropped off at a local charity.
  • Extend your food supply throughout the winter with blanching, freezing and canning. We can teach you how to do it.
  • Wind can harm your plants. We provide wind breaks on our raised beds to help.

There is a great book for kids 3 to 10 years old called Kids Gardening by Tina Forrester. The book covers basic soil preparation, seed-starting and detailed instructions for growing vegetables. The projects in the book are simple and fun and will definitely get your kids interested in growing their own garden!
