Container gardening is one of my most popular classes. You need only a little bit of sunny space to fit in a container and you can grow a surprising amount of veggies in a large one. Check out this video class on container gardening that discusses the four things you need to know to grow container veggies. (and herbs, and flowers, and fruit!)
Radishes are a healthy spring favorite vegetable that come in an array of shapes, sizes, and colors. Check out this fun and engaging 2 minute long video showing planting, harvesting, and preparing radishes into a spicy quick fridge pickle that takes advantage of this season’s harvest.
Our first garden walk of the year is tomorrow, Wednesday April 20th @ Mari Sunami Community Garden (see below) at 6pm. We will talk planting, bugs, and our 2022 spring outlook.

We are heavy into Seed Starting season for both spring and summer veggies. It is not too late to get tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant started for late May/early June transplanting as well as get some more lettuce, kale, and bok choi going for round two of spring greens. Below find a recorded webinar class on Seed Starting, a short and engaging 4 minute video that highlights the basics, as well as a video to demonstrate potting up transplants into cell packs.
You are invited to attend a Spring Gardening Tips Class @ The Grandview Heights Public Library on Tuesday March 8th @ 7pm. The class is free and open to the public so bring your friends and your questions. This in-person class will include socially distance seating and will require masks to attend. Hope to see you there.
October is a fine time to be in the garden. Less bugs, less heat, but still some good sunshine, rain, and decent planting windows. Make sure to keep your garden planted either in fresh veggies or by starting your over-wintered cover crop.
I like to say that Ohio is a four season growing environment. I grow and harvest every month of the year including January and February. I recently did a class on Growing Over Winter and many asked if I had a recording of that to view. You are in luck. Check out the Growing Over Winter webinar below.
There is still plenty of time to get seeds in the ground so that you can enjoy some fresh veggies all year long.
