Planting through the seasons
We are lucky to live in the Pacific Northwest with its long sunny summer days and mild (if wet) winters. This allows a home vegetable gardener to plant multiple crop rotations throughout the year, each one suited to the season. Many of us in Seattle savor those tomatoes and cucumbers in August, but did you know you can plant and then harvest radishes, lettuces and arugula as early as March or April? Have you ever tried fresh collard greens or endive from the garden in November? It can be done! Let me show you how to make the most of the Seattle seasons and harvest from your own edible landscape on an almost year round basis. February is definitely "the hungry month" but with a little planning you can eat something from your yard almost year round!
