Garlic and onions are some of the most satisfying crops you can grow in your home garden. These crops are both ready to harvest at the onset of peak harvest season, a harbinger of the forthcoming abundance. Luckily the crops are happy to be stored away for us to enjoy during less bounteous times of year. In this episode, we’re sharing some tips that will help you know when your crops are ready to harvest and how to store them.

Salad greens generally prefer to grow in cooler weather conditions, thriving in temperatures around 60 degrees F. This makes them a great spring and early summer crop, but growing great greens can start to get tricky in the hottest months of the year and in areas that receive full, direct sun. This week we have Natalie Carver, from Love and Carrots, a DC-based edible landscaping company, to discuss warm weather salad greens with us.

This past month we rounded the corner into summer so many of the questions we've been getting in our Slack group the past few weeks have been about pest and disease issues, harvesting, and pruning. This week we're going to discuss a question about leaf miners, a cauliflower harvesting dilemma, stunted greens beans and irregular sugar snap peas.
