Hi guys, I'm Rick Stone and I’m a gardening fanatic! Over the last 19 years I've grown a large garden at my home and it seems like every year that garden gets a little larger! Most years we grow between 800 to 1100 pounds of fresh veggies for our table and tons of great flowers to make our yard look awesome.

I grow all of my own seedlings and we have learned how to extend our garden harvest to 365 days a year. Even in our zone 5b garden! Growing in cold frames and hoop houses is the key!!

I'm a graduate of the Utah State University Master Gardener program and have been teaching classes for many years on gardening basics and year round gardening. For the last year I have been teaching courses online to nearly 1000 students. Come join me and we will learn everything you need to know to have a successful garden!!
