Winter gardening. No, I haven't bumped my head, and Christian and I didn't decide to pick up and move south. As crazy as it might sound, your garden is still a valuable tool no matter how cold it gets in the winter. While you might not be able to grow crops, today I'm going to explain how you can utilize your garden as additional storage to help your harvest last. I also cover other ways to extend your garden into the winter months, such as cold frames, high and low tunnels, and greenhouses. While you might be dreaming of a root cellar to solve your storage needs, this episode will give you many practical tips to ensure you're able to get the most out of your harvest!
