Now that mid-August is here it's time to start planning your fall garden! Although the timing to plant fall crops varies depending on your climate, now is the time to start preparing your fall starters and gathering your fall crop seeds to plant for an abundant fall harvest. In late summer while filming Back to Eden, Paul Gautschi showed us how he plants his potatoes, garlic, cilantro, spinach, beets, carrots, lettuces, kale, and other fall crops. Paul allows many of these crops to "overwinter" meaning to plant them in the fall and harvest them in the spring. Specifically, he taught us that beets and carrots get sweeter with the cold weather and potatoes and garlic love staying put during the long winter growing season in Back to Eden Gardens.
Where should I get my seeds to plant for my fall garden? This year, many of our trusted heirloom seed suppliers are running completely out of stock of seed for many crop varieties. Shortages in some food and seed supplies are expected to continue this coming year. Fortunately, the Back to Eden Organic Farmers that founded ARK Heirloom Seeds has got us all covered! ARK Heirloom Seeds has worked tirelessly all summer to maintain a high-quality supply of heirloom seeds to provide for the Back to Eden Gardening community. Their kits were specially designed to sustain your food supply in times of food scarcity and disaster, lasting for 10+ years. We have been keeping busy planting their seeds and enjoying their abundant harvest all summer with incredible results! The ARK ALL-IN-ONE SEED KIT includes a wide assortment of seeds for all growing seasons. Growing your own food from seed saves the an average of $3,000 per year in grocery bills!
