It sure makes me want to start. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us today! See everyone back here next week for another food chat.
Never would have known that. Anything else to add, Chris, before we say goodbye? #cookclub
As we wrap up, anyone following along feel free to throw out a question for Chris! #cookclub
You talk a lot in the story about thinning the plants, which is key to keeping your garden thriving. Can you talk about what that means and why it's important?
Seems like the most important thing you need to grow a garden is PATIENCE. #cookclub
No two gardens are the same!
Something I tend to struggle with: How do you know when to give up on a certain plant? How long should you give it before realizing it's not working?
That's a big theme in your story, too, that I appreciated: Don't turn your garden into a chore. Figure out how much time you have to devote to it and then see what you can do from there.
Nice! Man, any tips for what to do with all that cabbage? Cole slaw? Stuffed cabbage? #cookclub
Speaking of amounts: About how much food are you able to get from these plants? I liked the part in your story about how the broccoli keeps sprouting smaller heads.
The sustainability of it all seems very appealing. And you mention that growing your own seedlings is cheaper than buying them from a store. Overall, what are the costs associated with starting a garden? I imagine it's eventually way cheaper than buying produce from the store.
