Planting a Fall Garden in a Northern Climate
Our growing season is short, and there are many things that we can’t grow because of it. To plant a real winter garden, like growers do in the south, might not be possible, but don’t give it up altogether. A lot more is possible than you might think. What about planting a fall garden in a northern climate.

Growing your own food summit - Day 5 is alive!
Today Paul Gautschi is one of the representatives! Back to Eden - After years of back-breaking toil in ground ravaged by the effects of man-made growing systems, Paul Gautschi has discovered a taste of what God intended for mankind in the garden of Eden. Some of the vital issues facing agriculture today include soil preparation, fertilization, irrigation, weed control, pest control, crop rotation, and PH issues. None of these issues exist in the unaltered state of nature or in Paul’s gardens and orchards.
