Follow along as I plan my own epic family garden.
Nothing tastes better or is more satisfying than harvesting and cooking your own vegetables.
Spend your summer working with the soil, watching vegetables grow and being with the people you love in a beautiful garden.
Hi, I am Conor and I have been farming vegetables on less than an acre and a half for many years. This year I am creating a family vegetable garden using my farming skills. Join me and I will show you how to grow vegetables with less work using no till/no dig techniques with better results.
Being able to harvest beautiful vegetables from your own garden is an experience like none other. It is such a joy to be a part of a seed growing into a wonderful meal for your family and friends.
There has never been a better time to start growing your own vegetables. Having your own food supply not only gives security but a beautiful place at home to spend your time.
Planning your garden is very important. Join Conor as he sketches out his family garden, discusses the important tools required and not required, preparing garden beds using no till/no dig techniques and even builds a raised bed while you follow a long. Turning grass into fertile garden beds is difficult and a few methods to achieve this are discussed.
There are individual lessons for the most popular vegetables, like lettuce, kale, chard and tomatoes. Conor then goes beyond the basics covering crops like kohlrabi, celeriac and fennel.
Perennials and annual herbs are a must in any family garden as the y are the building blocks of cooking which is how use the garden. Herbs are very much a part of Conor's family garden.
Conor goes into detail about maintaining healthy soil. Soil is where most of your gardens success and failures can be traced. Thus soil gets its own mini course that sits alongside the main course. Learn how to sample soil, reading a soil test, why you need good soil, and how to maintain it.
Bonus content is included where you learn how to create a simple structure for more finicky plants like tomatoes and peppers.
The course starts with the basics of starting seedlings, plant spacing, and when to pant so that you have the best chance for success.
Absolutely. You can ask questions about gardening while going through the course and I will do my best to answer them. I welcome questions, as that is the best way for you to succeed.
Questions that I answer will be limited to general backyard gardening questions. Specific questions about your situation will be difficult to answer.
I will certainly be adding new material. My garden is in full swing and I am documenting whatever I can that I feel will be helpful. Stay tuned for more lessons coming.
A membership lasts a full year. This way you can reference the material from when you first plan your garden and buy seeds, up until you put your garden to sleep for the winter.
Not at all.
