Kitchen Garden

Kitchen gardens are made for intensive cultivation, so they are usually smaller than traditional vegetable plots, can easily be fenced to deter deer and other critters, and they can look lovely! Mark Ragland helps you realize your kitchen garden in time for you to get your hands dirty and creative juices flowing for the spring thaw. Mark covers planning, preparation, and plant selection with a trip to the Garden’s Kroger Community Kitchen Garden for inspiration.
