It’s a gardening mantra we’ve heard our entire lives: Spring and summer are for gardening, fall is for harvesting, and winter is for dreaming about gardening. Right? Well, maybe not.
Author and horticultural expert Caleb Warnock gardens year-round – and he does it outdoors in the ice-cold state of Utah. In fact, he even grows beans, cantaloupes and tomatoes outdoors, and he doesn’t use a greenhouse.
Caleb – the author of “Backyard Winter Gardening” – is this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio.
He shares with us tips on growing vegetables even in locations that get a foot of snow. Caleb also tells us:
- The quickest and easiest way to get started in backyard winter gardening.
- How to make a cold frame that will withstand the fiercest frigid temps.
- What an all-natural hot bed is – and how it can revolutionize your winter garden.
- How our ancestors grew vegetables during the winter.
