How-to videos offering top notch farming and gardening information
The Fall Equinox is upon us, the summer harvest is winding down, and the temperatures are beginning to drop. Have you considered growing a winter garden?
If you didn’t have a chance to grow your own starts (young plants) in a seed tray, not to worry! A variety of cool weather plants – arugula, broccoli, kale, brussels sprouts – are available at many local nurseries. Urban farmer, Kelly Wood, demonstrates how she transplants kale starts into her winter garden bed. Kale, a cruciferous vegetable, is a hearty and very healthy green that gets sweeter in the cooler months ahead.
If you live in a climate that will tolerate growing a cool weather crop, consider giving it a try!Kelly Wood grows produce and flowers, raises chickens, goats, bees, and her family on a five acre property within a mile of downtown Portland. Learn more at Amaranth Produce.
