Learn to plant and grow a year-round garden.
In this class you will learn how to extend your growing season to 365 days a year no matter where you live. Not only will you learn how to have peas in June and tomatoes in August, but you will also learn how to grow tasty veggies in your garden all year long. Including the dead of winter! All using simple, inexpensive structures like mini hoop houses and cold frames.
This is a very thorough look at everything you need to know about year round gardening. With over 5 1/2 hours of content broken into very manageable pieces. Learn what crops to grow, when to plant them and what you need to do to protect your crops so that you can have something to harvest EVERY day of the year.
Plant the right kinds of plants at the right time of year and you can have fresh picked veggies even in the coldest months of the winter. Carrots, lettuce, mache, spinach, Swiss Chard, kale and more can be ready for you to pick from your hoop houses and cold frames all winter long.
Use your cold frame or hoop house to provide a nice warm environment to get your seeds and seedlings started earlier in the spring than you ever thought possible.
Fabric row covers and hoop houses will help you extend your growing season well into the late fall. Adding 90 days or more harvest time to your favorite cool season veggies and even helping to add ripening time for your late summer tomatoes!

"I was looking for ideas on how to increase the growing season for my back yard garden. I live in the high desert of the great American Southwest, which means plenty of snow and freezing temperatures in the winter. This means, on average, a frost-free growing season starting mid April and ending Oct 28, a total of just 195 days. I wanted to use those as many of the remaining 170 days as possible. Rick Stone's Course "Year Round Gardening" had the information I was looking for. Subjects included everything from garden bed location and size, to proper crop rotation, planting times for safe timely harvesting; and how to protect crops with well made covers and cold frames. A lot of information to present, and presented well. Information was broken down into bite size lectures within subject matter related Sections. Each lecture easily digested (pardon the play on words) leading logically to the next, until the subject material was fully presented. Yes, I would recommend this course to both beginning and advanced gardeners looking for ways to extend their time doing what they enjoy. More Gardening!"

Hi guys, I'm Rick Stone and I’m a gardening fanatic! Over the last 19 years I've grown a large garden at my home and it seems like every year that garden gets a little larger! Most years we grow between 800 to 1100 pounds of fresh veggies for our table and tons of great flowers to make our yard look awesome.
I grow all of my own seedlings and we have learned how to extend our garden harvest to 365 days a year. Even in our zone 5b garden! Growing in cold frames and hoop houses is the key!!
