Video: How to Start Growing Your Own Food in Your Backyard or Patio Garden! (Class @ Myriad Gardens)
This class taught at the Myriad Gardens covers everything you need to know about how to start growing food!
Strawberries are one of our favorite things to grow! The sweetness and flavor in home-grown strawberries simply can’t be beaten! They’re easy to grow and will come back year after year and continue to spread. Strawberries are one of the few plants that we don’t even attempt to grow from seed. It takes up to three years for a plant to produce fruit, so it’s generally better to buy transplants from the nursery instead of starting from seed.
March is one of our favorite times of the year for growing food. Life is beginning to emerge from the cold & dead of winter, and new sprouts are popping up everywhere!

Spinach is an amazing cool weather crop that is one of our favorites! It tastes so much better directly from your garden than buying from the grocery store. You will be so impressed just like we were the first time we tried it! Spinach is a staple of our garden in the spring and fall.

A great way to maximize your growing space is to grow vertically! Check out this video to see how we make our trellises using commonly found supplies from the hardware store!
Boysenberries are a cross between blackberries, raspberries, and loganberries. They are fairly easy to grow and are well worth the reward! Boysenberry bushes can grow very tall and will require a trellis to help support the height. Boysenberry bushes will continue to give fruit year after year, however it usually takes a year for the plant to first produce berries. You can cut any canes that produce fruit at the base after the season is over since they won’t produce again.
Carrots are tough to germinate, but are easy to take care of once they do. We love to grow all different colors and varieties, and the kids have a blast pulling them up!
