Plant Cutting Propagation Basics

Sure, you can buy a plant at the garden center, but why not try helping a new one take root on your own? Be it by seed or vegetative methods, starting new plants is a rewarding growing technique. (Live well and propagate!)

Vegging Out? Harvest These Ideas…
Chard Prolong Fresh Produce

A bountiful harvest is wonderful for your garden, diet, table and wallet. But when your vegetable patch is producing at full tilt (or if you bought too much at the farmers’ market), it can be a challenge to eat all that food before it goes bad. If you’re worried about your harvest (or food dollars) wilting and rotting away, and want to keep your fridge fuzz-free, consider these tips that can help prolong the life of fresh produce.
Produce Stand Share It, Save It, Sell It!

Every growing season is different from the next, but it’s not uncommon for vegetable gardeners to find that they’re eventually reaping more food than they can possibly eat. If you’re enjoying an overabundant harvest this year and don’t want to waste any of that precious produce you’ve worked so hard to grow, consider sharing it with others, saving it for later or selling the fruits of your labor before the “freshness” wears off.
