Edible Crop Planning

If you haven't already it is time to start planting for your school harvest.. Planting for a school time harvest takes a bit more planning so that you time your harvests while school is still in session.

Generally there are a few harvest windows during the school year:
  • Vegetable crops planted in late winter-early spring can be harvested before school lets out.
  • Vegetable crops planted in late spring (right before school lets out) can be harvested when school starts back up assuming the garden is watered and weeded during the summer.
  • Vegetable crops planted in late summer-early fall can be harvested in the late fall-winter time.
