Growing a vegetable garden is one of the most rewarding things we do BUT if you’re brand new (or putting in a new garden) it can feel overwhelming to make sure you do it right. The most important thing is creating a garden that works for you and your growing space (meaning no two gardens will look exactly the same) and you need to know how to evaluate your growing space and climate.

I walk you through each step of putting in a new garden in this video!
