We are teaching ourselves how to garden organically. This is our 2nd year gardening in Zone 7B using open-pollinated, heirloom seeds. Our first year, we just threw some seeds in the garden to see if anything would grow. This year we are a bit more organized (just a bit). We are still experimenting with different techniques and seeds to see what works for us. Today we are starting onions, cabbage, peas, broccoli, artichokes, and celery.

These plants love cool weather! This is an all organic planting of radishes (by seed). Lettuces, Kale, Mustard Greens, Beets and Peas go in as transplants. I am using bagged compost and organic fertilizer. I show you the ground prep, fertilizing and planting of these crops. Lots of tips as I talk.

A lot of fertilizers are on sale now as it is the end of the season. Save a lot of money and look for sales. Now is great time to start your cool weather crops in seed cells, outdoors, for you fall garden. Get your peas, beets, spinach and greens started now in seed trays. You can grow cool weather crops up until the first hard frost.

In the second tour for 2016, I talk about the frame I recommend for a pop-up/collapsible greenhouse and give you tips for keeping it warm. I also highlight the weakness of this basically 3 year greenhouse. My containers are ready for peas and greens, a quick tip on perennial flowers and I describe what acclimation is so your indoor seed starts don’t burn in the sun. Plus a quick look at everything that is growing.
