This one-day workshop will help you create a year-round garden so you can raise and harvest food all year round, by planting seasonally in raised beds with protective structures like cloches, cold frames, tunnels, row cover and greenhouses. By planting different crops in succession and protecting your plants with simple structures, you can harvest food all through the year, even in the winter.
“Bumper crop” is on the tip of everyone’s tongue when talking about the Summer of 2012. With bare spots marking the end of a harvest, now is a good time to revitalize the soil by planting a cover crop or green manure. Green manures are basically plants that you grow as cover crops which add organic matter and nutrients to the soil.
I didn't get my garden started until way, way late this year, basically too late for most things to root or fruit to maturity, although you never know with the warm summer we've had. So because of that I decided to focus on greens and planted a lot of random ones really densely together in a 6' x 6' raised bed to make a big lovely sprout and baby greens garden.
