The key to year-round gardening is some planning and some simple protection to have fresh vegetables all year long.
Let me give you an idea of what I’m talking about. I started year round gardening in 2009. That spring we planted our normal garden and started harvesting the first radishes and lettuce about May 1st. By building a few cold frames and hoop houses and applying what I learned we have had something fresh we could eat from our garden every day since. You read that right; we have had some kind of fresh produce available to us from our garden every day now for over 7 years (as of 2016)!!
