Shed Garden

We transformed our lonely shed, abandoned at the edge of a gravel driveway into a food source and cozy retreat from the summer sun.

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Get a Jump on a Cool-Season Vegetable Garden
Go for the cold. Some cool-season vegetables can even cross the line and survive as cold-season vegetables. Kale in particular can survive until the temperature reaches the freezing point and may even last through snow.
Marianne Lipanovich added this to Cool-Season Vegetables: How to Grow Kale
When to plant: Sow seeds in late summer and early fall for fall and winter harvest. For a summer harvest, plant in spring two weeks to a month before the last frost date.Days to maturity: 55 to 75Light requirement: A sunny spot is best, though afternoon shade is good if the climate is very hot.Water requirement: Water regularly and consistently until just before the first frost.Favorites: Dwarf Blue Curled, Dwarf Siberian, Lacinato, Redbor, Red Ursa, Russian Red, Siberian, Vates, White Russian, WinterborPlanting and care: Sow seeds about a quarter inch deep and an inch apart, then thin to about 8 inches to 1 1/2 feet apart, depending on plant size (eat the thinnings as an early garden treat). Kale does best in good soil with consistent watering. Fertilize the soil with a complete food during planting and about a month later. The plants can reach 3 feet tall, so you may need to stake them. Kale can take some summer heat but is more likely to bloom than to produce leaves then. Pests and diseases are pretty insignificant.Harvest: Start cutting leaves from the outside or else pull up the entire plant. More: 12 Edibles to Plant in Late Summer
“It’s a superfood, which means it’s appearing in all kind of meals, from main courses to energy shakes.” — Marianne LipanovichI can’t hear “Kale is a superfood” without thinking of one of my favorite comedians, who finishes up that phrase with, “And its special power is tasting terrible!” (In kale’s defense, that bit is based upon hating all fruits and vegetables, along with shellfish.) Kale is the trendiest leafy green around, and growing your own will extend your edible garden’s growing system. Full story: Cool-Season Vegetables: How to Grow Kale If you’re more of a Swiss chard fan, Lipanovich has you covered: Cool-Season Vegetables: How to Grow ChardIf you’re really digging into this late-summer and early-fall edible growing season, try 9 Ways to Change Up Your Vegetable Garden for the Coming Season.

Go green. Lettuces and other greens will quickly go to seed and become bitter in summer, but plant them during the spring and early fall and you can enjoy fresh-from-the-garden goodness for salads and sandwiches for weeks.
