Grow more vegetables than ever in your garden this season!
Your garden should add to your life by bringing you more of the things that breathe color into your days—things like food, beauty, health, pleasure, and joy. And less of the things that bring you stress, like weeds, pests, and failing vegetable plants.
The most successful gardeners take some time before the garden season begins to devise a simple and smart plan for the year. A smart garden plan lays the groundwork for a beautiful garden that yields lots of food for the least amount of time and money invested.

- Gardeners who'd like to get more food from their garden this season.
The most successful gardeners are those who come up with a simple plan for the season. Here's what we'll be covering in the next few videos. You can also download the full digital copy of my book, Smart Start Garden Planner, here.
Before you jump into planning this year's garden, take a step back and think about your successes from last season and what you'd like to do differently this year.
The different vegetables you'll plant in your garden produce widely different amounts of food, which is why it's important to understand how much food each plant will provide you with throughout the season. In addition to watching these videos, you can download and read the entire Veggie Essentials section and Cheat Sheet from my book, Smart Start Garden Planner.
Sometimes, when we're holding a seed or small plant, we have trouble imagining how big it will grow. This often means things get planted too close and become overgrown, which effects how well each plant produces. See the Veggie Essentials section of the Smart Start Garden Planner for more on this topic.
Vegetables vary widely in the number of days they need to grow until we can harvest them for dinner. We'll break them down into three categories for you so you can plan to plant a few from each. See the Veggie Essentials section of the Smart Start Garden Planner for more on this topic.
