We continue our discussion of easy to grow cool season vegetables with Master Gardener and vegetable expert Gail Pothour. Last episode, we discussed the easy greens to start in your garden now in USDA Zones 7, 8 and 9. This time, we talk about easy root crops to grow, like carrots, turnips, beets and radishes. Plus tasty fall and winter above ground vegetables like sugar snap peas, snow peas and broccoli. Gail has a list of her favorite varieties to grow for gardeners just starting out. Also, we bounce around the topic of using rubber mulch in the yard, with our favorite retired horticulture professor, Debbie Flower.
It’s Episode 50 of the Garden Basics with Farmer Fred podcast, brought to you by Smart Pots, and we will do it all in under 30 minutes.
Garden Basics comes out every Tuesday and Friday. It's available wherever podcasts are found.
