Beginning Gardening Tips for Polk County Gardeners

— Written By and last updated by

There has been a lot of talk recently about growing vegetables at home due to the pandemic. I personally think it’s always a great idea to be prepared by having a source of food in your backyard. In normal years, I would have a class on this very topic but this year–as we all know–things are quite different. Face-to-face classes are out of the question for the time being, but I know we will get back to normal at some point. For now, we’ll try to fill in the gap with some tips for beginning gardeners. 

At the end of the article, you’ll find a list of wonderful online resources that can help you move beyond the basics of growing food in your backyard. And, of course, I’m always here to help! If you have specific gardening questions along the way, give me a call at 828-817-6277 or shoot me an email
