Four Season Gardening

Believe it or not, it is winter, and you will find me in my garden - still! And I am going to show you how your garden can still thrive in the winter. Raised Bed gardening makes it all possible, by extending the possibilities for your growing season.

The keys to winter gardening are having the proper seeds and the proper environment. By creating a micro-climate you can create a warmer environment than what is actually outside. The goal is to raise the temperature in your micro-climate to somewhere between 35 and 55 degrees Fahrenheit.
