Season Extension

season extension

As many local gardeners know, our growing season can be very short! Some great ways to extend your season include:

- Growing crops that are tolerant to colder temperatures (greens such as kale and spinach, peas and brassicas which include broccoli and cauliflower, as well as many root crops such as beets and carrots)
- Creating protection for your crops using hoop houses (pictured above), pop bottles or cold frames (one example pictured below). Here are some great tips and ideas from Mother Earth News
