Want to get the most out of your garden this year? Of course you do — and you can with succession planting! In this podcast episode, I’ll share a few simple planting techniques that will help you grow more — no matter what size your garden is — and keep the harvest coming well into the fall season.
With a little planning and preparation, succession planting not only produces more food and extends the harvest time, it also maximizes garden space and provides a continuous supply of vegetables over a longer period of time — even in a small garden space!
Tune in to learn three simple succession planting techniques and the veggies to grow in succession!
If you’re new to gardening, you’re probably of the mindset that the gardening season begins in the spring and it ends at the end of summer.
Now there’s nothing wrong with that line of thinking. But with succession planting, you can start your season earlier in the spring and extend it beyond the “end of the season” time frame and most importantly, maximize your harvests.
Simply put, succession planting is a great way to grow more in your garden. And with rising food prices – who wouldn’t want that!
There’s a good chance that you’re already doing succession planting and you just don’t realize it. Have you ever removed spent plants from your garden and replanted another crop in its place? Well, if you have, you’ve planted in succession. It’s when one crop is finished producing and another is planted in its place.
I want to get as much as I can from my small garden within the my region’s short growing season, therefore, I use season extending techniques, like low tunnels and I keep my garden producing all season and beyond with succession planting.
