Our experienced Yardeners will use their gardening knowledge to maximize the potential of your newly installed gardens. They will usually begin in late February or early March by planting salad crops such as lettuces, radishes, onions, spinach, kale, kohlrabi, carrots, beets, and other cool season crops depending on what you prefer to grow. These tender crops will need to be protected by a floating row cover that will keep frost, harsh winds, and hungry critters away from your plants. These floating row covers make a “salad chute” that will help them thrive and provide you with the best possible ingredients for salads as early as April. Your Yardener will provide information on purchasing these covers and then will install them once your crops are planted.
Your Yardener will visit every week or two to inspect your garden, plant additional crops, pull weeds, and ensure the garden is growing at its peak performance. You’ll receive a progress report of what is going on in your garden each time they visit. The report will include myriad information about what’s growing, when and how to harvest, photographs, and recipes for using those fresh veggies!
As the seasons change, your Yardener will use “Succession Gardening” methods to move from early spring to summer crops. The Yardener will continue to consult with you about your needs and will provide and plant all of the seeds and plants needed to maximize your yield throughout the summer and into fall. Expect to have something to eat fresh out of the garden from April through November depending on the severity of the weather.
