Your CLIMATE is perfect for growing vegetables and herbs the right garden system. Students from SIX DIFFERENT CONTINENTS have put Grow Your Own Vegetables to work for them...
“I have been growing vegetables for 40+ years, and have recently attained Master Gardener status with Oklahoma State University, but I have never used cover crops over the winter. This is the year I will start! Love your videos...your presentations explain the "why" behind the "do this."
“I have been gardening vegetables for 10 years and I've attended several workshops on composting taught by master gardeners and professional farm managers. This was the 1st time I heard the difference between the types of bin composting and the advantages of each type. I also never learned how to correct composting problems and the reason for not using meat, dairy and fatty oils in composting. In the video I learned the details of making compost tea and learned different ways use it. Also I had never heard of Biochar before. This was time well spent.”
“The love you are passing on to give us enough information which allows every gardener to make a choice of how they want to take on their gardening adventure, from beginner to more experienced gardeners. There is a gem for each to culture the love of a garden to improve the Earth.”
Avoid the overwhelm... This is the step-by-step process you'll take toward garden success. Follow along and get the support you need.

Start off on the right foot by identifying what makes your site unique so you can work WITH nature. Understanding your local resources makes growing vegetables much simpler and you can save precious time and money. Get to know your climate and discover how to create microclimates to extend your growing season. If you need to borrow land, you can follow my steps for finding the right landowners, setting expectations and negotiating contracts.
Week 2 - SOIL

Demystify what makes soil healthy, and practice the three basic things you can do to ensure long term fertility. Compare the pros and cons of various planting bed styles and choose the one that's right for you. As a bonus, there's a case study of how to remediate soil with high levels of lead.
Week 3 - COMPOST
Making Compost & Compost Teas
Composting happens! There’s nothing to fear. It's extremely easy once you understand what's happening below the surface. Discover how to fix wet, dry and smelly compost piles as well as speed up the composting process. Brewing compost teas and applying biochar can be a great addition to the garden as well as your first line of defense against pests and diseases. Once you’ve mastered compost, you might proudly watch your food scraps recycle back into your garden.

Week 6 - WATER
Simplifying Irrigation Systems
Soil too wet? Too dry? Never doubt yourself again as you show you a quick trick for deciding whether it’s time to water. Water is essential for vegetable plants. Analyze how much water your garden naturally receives and compare this to your vegetables’ needs. Is this the year you complete your first basic plumbing project with a rainwater harvest or drip irrigation system? You won’t believe how much work this will save you in the long run!

“I didn't know there were garden systems, I could barely tell the difference between potting soil, compost and mulch! I didn't know anything about setting up an irrigation system, I thought those were for fancy lawns. So here I am, with raised garden boxes, planted with some great stuff, and I’ve installed a drip irrigation system.”
“The tips and explanations given in the Joyful Gardener will definitely save time and be rewarding for the harvest. One example is the 'Chop and Drop" method of soil mulching. I had not heard anyone explain that concept as understandably as Stacey.”
“The Joyful Gardener has visuals and practical advice that even an experienced gardener can glean some new information from.”
“I am genuinely impressed with your presentation. Just as you are densely packing your garden you have also densely packed with information … your clear descriptions, videos and slides have helped me a lot to actually understand everything. But even more than that, your smiling face and happy sparkling eyes have contagiously convinced me that gardening really can be a joyful experience!”
“How big of a difference just one of your ideas has made! I implemented your harvest log idea and it is helping us figure out when the different fruits and vegetables are all ripe throughout the year. We use this information to even out our production as we rotate crops throughout the year.”
“I have been gardening for years, but I have learned many new skills. One is I have been harvesting "greens" wrong and wasting a lot of greens. I also never knew how to prune tomatoes and cucumbers.”
