Did you know that you can harvest many crops from your garden in winter and early spring? Food holds so well in the winter garden that it’s like a refrigerator where produce never goes bad. It’s been a great convenience and source of nutrition during “Covid time,” and it’s extremely satisfying to eat from the garden when it’s cold outside.
Learning to make your garden bear all year is certainly an emergency preparedness skill. While a few winter crops are started in the fall, many are actually started in the summer.
Attend our June 14 Veg Club session via Zoom to see the many crops you can grow, when to plant them, and how to protect them in winter. It’s free and all are welcome.
Join us via Zoom from 7 to 9 p.m. on Tuesday, June 14 and the second Tuesday of every month at https://krl.zoom.us/j/85709916119
