Grow Your Own Fresh Veggies Over Winter

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.

Growing Over Winter Virtual Class on 9/30 in Partnership with Grange Audubon Center

I will be speaking on Growing Over Winter in partnership with one of my favorite central Ohio places, the Grange Audubon Center.  This virtual event takes place at 6:30pm on Thursday September 30th.
Ohio is a four-season growing environment. Did you know with a little planning, wise variety choices, and a little season extension fabric you can harvest your own fresh vegetables from January to March.  No outdoor space available? We will also talk about indoor hydroponics and how you can grow indoors in the winter as well.
There is registration required.  Register at THIS LINK.
See you then!
