    The Homestead Gardener November 2017

    homestead gardener magazine cover Nov 2017

    When the temperatures change and nights get chilly deciduous trees and shrubs put on a colorful show before finally going bare for the winter. But...did you know what makes the leaves go so beautiful in the fall?

    Urban gardening has lots of challenges. One of them is at the very core of gardening: the soil! How can you make sure that the soil is not contaminated with poisonous substances that will be absorbed into plant tissue? Chris Condello is an expert on urban gardening and shares his experiences with us in this issue.

    If you want to be a successful veggie gardener you have to know the gardening seasons and growing cycles of your garden. These can vary a bit depending on your location and climate but they e.g. determine when you have to sow your veggies. Bountiful Gardens will shed some light on this important topic.

    Have you ever tried growing ginger? This root is not only delicious but also comes with a long list of health benefits. It has been in use by humanity for many centuries. It needs a warm climate though to thrive so many of us won't be able to grow this useful plant in their gardens. It can be easily grown in containers indoors though why not give it a go? All you need is a store bought ginger root...
