September is a great time to start growing food! The heat should fade away by the end of the month and it’ll start being nice enough to be outdoors again.
Join us as we discuss our planting method for these cool season brassicas. We plant out our Big Bag Bed Smart Pot with cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, and kale.
When people think about gardening and growing food, they typically associate it with the spring and summer months. However, fall is actually a better time to grow food than spring for several reasons!
Dale and Carrie sat down to go through a list of questions that they had received this week. Topics discussed include organic pest control, beneficial critters, and how to grow your own food (specific plants discussed includes peppers, garlic, fruit trees & bushes, onions, squash).
July is one of your favorite months to grow food if you like salsa! Not only are the tomatoes and peppers starting to flourish, but we’ll also have more squash, beans, cucumbers, basil, and okra than we know what to do with! This is one of the many ways our app can come in handy!
June is our wettest month, but don’t let that fool you because July and August’s heat is right around the corner. This makes June the perfect month to get drip irrigation set up for the upcoming months.

May is one of the best months for growing in Oklahoma.
Culantro is a herb typically grown in tropical areas as a replacement for cilantro. Cilantro is one of our favorite herbs to use in cooking, but our growing season here in Oklahoma makes it difficult to grow because of how hot it gets. Culantro is a great alternative to cilantro that flourishes in heat and can handle as much sun as you give it. It has a bit more of a kick than traditional cilantro, but we are usually using it in Mexican dishes so we enjoy this extra kick! Culantro does not typically transplant well so it is best to do them from seed.
