Planning A Kitchen Garden
Planning A Kitchen Garden - Tips from the Past for Modern Gardeners
The kitchen garden played a vital role in the diet and landscape of 1800s New England households. Christie will demonstrate how a traditional garden design can create an attractive garden that incorporates vegetables, herbs and fruits. Christie will highlight practices valuable for today’s family kitchen garden such as inter-planting and succession planting, using garden frames, and crop spacing. Christie will also show her own garden.
