Do You Dream of a Bountiful Year-Round Vegetable Garden?
Stepping outside your kitchen door,
and plucking a sun-warmed juicy tomato right off the vine…
Pulling up sweet, crunchy carrots,
and enjoying the pleasant earthy smell of healthy soil…
Harvesting vibrantly green leaves of kale and spinach,
thriving in a cold frame under the snow…
There’s nothing quite as satisfying as harvesting fresh, flavorful, and
nutrient-dense organic vegetables from your own garden.
You're About to Learn How to Do This All Year-Round!
How I Finally Became Serious About Harvesting Abundant Organic Vegetables 12 Months a Year
Like You, I Started Out as a Casual Gardener
For many years, I was a casual gardener. I had small gardens, and each year I grew a few of my favorite vegetables. While I really enjoyed gardening and loved the great tasting vegetables that I harvested, my initial gardens didn’t provide much of my food.
Over 35 years, I gradually expanded my gardening skills and how much food I produced in my garden. I became a Master Gardener and taught organic gardening. I learned how to grow extremely productive vertical gardens, and how to harvest fresh vegetables all winter long.
Why Growing Most of My Own Food is Now Very Important to Me
In 2009, I suddenly developed a serious and disabling autoimmune disease – psoriatic spondylitis.
I was in severe pain 24 hours a day for several years, as I couldn’t tolerate pain medications and conventional medicine couldn’t control my disease. I could no longer work at ground level, and my hands became badly damaged. At one point, I couldn’t even hold onto a fork long enough to finish eating a meal.
I became disabled and lost my job. I had to sell my homestead, and my sister and I bought a home together.
In desperation, I went gluten-free and changed my diet to one that included large amounts of fresh organic fruits and vegetables – nearly 10-12 servings a day. At least 50% of every meal now consists of vegetables.
By eating large amounts of fresh vegetables, my inflammation and pain levels have improved greatly! I’m not cured by any means. I’m still greatly limited in my activities due to permanent damage to my joints, and I have to deal with occasional flare-ups of my disease. But I'm so grateful for the health improvements I now have!
Nutrient-Dense Organic Vegetables Saved the Day!
My diet has made such a dramatic difference to my health that my garden is now a high priority for me. I never want to go back to experiencing years of unrelenting pain again!
But purchasing 10-12 servings of organic fruits and vegetables a day is very expensive. I became determined to be able to harvest large amounts of fresh, high quality vegetables all year-round, and to store and preserve some of our extra produce.
It was time to get really serious about my gardening!
Learning How to Plan a Year-Round Garden Wasn't Easy!
Believe it or not, my Master Gardener training didn't teach the nitty gritty details of year-round vegetable gardening. Nor did my college courses on organic agriculture.
And much of the information on garden planning and scheduling available in books and the internet is very generic. Authors often assume that common gardening techniques and schedules will work just fine in any climate or region - and that's simply not true!
Planning my garden wouldn't be difficult if I was just growing a standard row garden in the summer, and was going to preserve most of my food. I would just create a larger garden, use a simple garden schedule, plant more rows, and can or freeze most of the food.
But that would require a lot more work and a lot more space than we had available. And I would only have fresh vegetables a few months a year.
My sister and I have limited time, space, and energy for our garden.
We needed to use small garden beds.
But learning how to produce a lot more food from a small garden, and to schedule fresh harvests all year, requires quite a bit more planning than a simple summer row garden.
I Finally Took My Vegetable Garden to the Next Level
I wanted the freshest and most nutritious food possible - and lots of it! Casual gardening would no longer meet my needs. I focused my research on how to plan a bountiful year-round garden.
I studied the information provided by other highly experienced year-round gardeners. I conducted experiments in my own garden. I pulled together data from all over the internet.
It took months of research and compiling material from multiple sources,
but I finally had the information that I needed
- and in a step-by-step process that I could easily use!
We Now Have the Garden That We Dreamed Of!
With my sister doing most of the physical work in our garden, we now:
Harvest nearly 900 pounds of vegetables a year
Enjoy fresh food from our garden all year-round
Save over $2,000 worth of grocery bills each year
Spend an average of less than 2 hour per week in our garden
So, What's Next?
I've had many members of the Abundant Mini Gardens community ask me detailed questions about planning year-round gardens. Unfortunately, the nature of blog posts means that these articles have to be pretty generic. There is no way to provide enough detailed garden planning information within short articles for gardeners all across the country .
So, I decided to take the next step.
I worked closely with a core group of gardeners from many different regions, to design a course that will teach people how to create their own custom-designed year-round garden plan and calendars.
I'm now ready to offer this special course to gardeners who are passionate about growing more of their own vegetables.

Discover What to Grow
In the first module, you'll receive a custom-designed spreadsheet to help you easily choose the vegetables that will give you the greatest chance of success in your own garden.
No matter what combination of growing conditions and goals you have, this unique spreadsheet makes it easy to choose just the right vegetables!

* The type of vegetables that you'd like to grow
Just plug in a few numbers, and it will calculate the estimated space for you!
Discover How Much to Plant
It can be very challenging to try to figure out how much of each crop to plant in your garden, as there are many different factors involved, including:
* Number of people in your household
* Your eating habits - number & size of daily vegetable servings
* Which vegetables you want to eat fresh, or to preserve or store
In this third module, you'll learn several different methods that you can use to calculate how much to plant for each crop - whether for fresh harvests or for preserving. You'll also receive special spreadsheets that you can use to better estimate the space needed for producing certain amounts of 30 different vegetables.
