Do you see the resemblance?🧐 Rainbow and Swiss Chard are part of the Beetroot Family, which is also called the Goosefoot Family.🤔 When you start to see the connections between plants within families, it helps you better understand how and when to grow them, their nutritional commonalities, and how best...

 I love garden puns. So much so - that there’s an optional activity included in one 3rd/4th Grade Rutabaga lesson (about the Gourd Family) about the magical world of garden-related puns. ✨🤓✨ Photo taken...

What you're looking at is life.💚 You won't see this on your lettuce at the grocery store or farmer's market, and there is a good reason for that.🥬 A few weeks back, San Diego's heatwave triggered many of my cool-season crops to get into the mindset of reproduction. By mindset,...
