CORE CLASS: Autumn to Spring - Extending the seasons in the kitchen garden
When I first began growing vegetables in my mid twenties, I tended to sow everything in a rush in the Spring, panicking to get everything into the ground - and then completely forget about succession sowing. There would plenty to harvest from mid summer until late August . . . but then things petered out and by late September there would be very little growing.
It took a while to realise that - with a little extra planning - I could not only extend the season into October, but also get a head start on the following year with things that would give me crops in March and April if treated properly. If it was a mild winter I could do even better, and be picking from the garden on all but the coldest days.
This course takes you step by step through lots of different ways to extend the season. Methods that I have tried out in my garden in the middle of Scotland.
I talk about what varieties are at their best if sown in late July/early August to harvest through the autumn, how to protect crops from the worst of the winter weather, how to get the best from your greenhouse or cold frame and what you can grow even if you don't have a garden.
The lessons are a mix of videos, text, photos and downloads and will be posted each week from 13th July until mid August.
