Garden: that magical place where the regenerative forces of nature meet human creativity. Use the resources in this section to create a new kitchen garden or level up an existing one. It’s also pretty handy if you want to dig deeper into four-season garden practices, too.
We’re approaching June and the summer solstice. Click here to learn all about the June garden: what to plant, what to harvest, and how to manage those bugs.

The Monthly Garden Tasklists
The most useful resource we have for gardeners, seasoned and newbies, is the Monthly Garden Tasklists eBook. Use it to organize your gardens, month by month and season by season. There’s a corresponding post on the blog for more information about each month’s tasks to help you skill build while you plan.
Growing Indoor Gardens
As mentioned above, this course was designed to encourage you to grow salad greens during the winter months. It is equally informative for anyone wanting a seasonal lifestyle but with limited time or space for gardening. It’s an easy email course that will provide safe and nutritious greens anytime you have a craving!
The course begins with a free download of the Plant Diary from the Kitchen Garden Planner and Journal. It’s the easiest way I know to track my indoor growing methods with detailed notes about growing success and obstacles to good harvests.
Gardening and the seasonal lifestyle
Creating gardens, especially vegetable gardens, is the cornerstone activity of a seasonal lifestyle. I talk more about that in the video below. It’s from Stony Ridge Farm, that’s where I live and grow.
