#313: Growing Vegetables in a Colder Climate with Author & Expert Mary Schier



In This Episode of the Vegetable Gardening Show

#313: Growing Vegetables in a Colder Climate with Author & Expert Mary Schier In this episode of the Vegetable Gardening show, Mike chats with garden expert and author Mary Schier about what it takes to grow vegetables in a cold climate.

Cold climate gardening is one of the bigger challenges many gardeners face as they try to grow tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and other warmer weather crops, when the weather will simply not cooperate.

Many methods have been developed over the years to grow vegetables in a cold climate and Mary Schier, the author of the book, "From Apples to Zinnias: Northern Gardener", shares her tips with us.

She tell us how, in her zone 4 climate, gardeners extend gardening seasons, are able to start plants sooner, and trick she learned that gardeners used nearly 150 years ago, that may seem odd, but does work.

This, and so much more, on this episode of The Vegetable Gardening Show!
