Winter Gardening - Plant the right kinds of plants at the right time of year and you can have fresh picked veggies even in the coldest months of the winter. Carrots, lettuce, mache, spinach, Swiss Chard, kale and more can be ready for you to pick from your hoop houses and cold frames all winter long.
Spring Gardening - Use your cold frame or hoop house to provide a nice warm environment to get your seeds and seedlings started earlier in the spring than you ever thought possible.
Fall Gardening - Fabric row covers and hoop houses will help you extend your growing season well into the late fall. Adding 90 days or more harvest time to your favorite cool season veggies and even helping to add ripening time for your late summer tomatoes!
Hi guys, I'm Rick Stone and I’m a gardening fanatic! Over the last 19 years I've grown a large garden at my home and it seems like every year that garden gets a little larger! Most years we grow between 800 to 1100 pounds of fresh veggies for our table and tons of great flowers to make our yard look awesome.
I grow all of my own seedlings and we have learned how to extend our garden harvest to 365 days a year. Even in our zone 5b garden! Growing in cold frames and hoop houses is the key!!
