While we've been discussing opting out of various systems throughout this entire season, most of our solutions have been to seek out things that aren't necessarily mainstream. However, there is one area of the food system that most of you have the opportunity to take ownership of in your own home. In today's episode, I'm joined by my friend Bailey Vantassel, a garden blogger and enthusiast from California. Together we start at the beginning, discussing how to determine what crops are suitable for you climate, how to analyze and amend your soil, what plants that will thrive in the shade, and so much more. We also discuss what makes a hero veggie, and reveal the key secret to making any garden successful. What is it? You'll have to listen to find out!
