Superfood Garden Summit

Airing LIVE May 14-17, 2024

Doesn’t it seem strange how our culture is so technologically advanced, and yet we find ourselves feeling stressed out and disconnected?

It is becoming all too common in today’s times.

A healthy diet can help, but I’ve felt for a while that something else is missing. I think about this a lot, and whenever something feels complex, it usually means I need to dig deeper…

… into the heart of the matter.

Gardening is not just a way to grow food. It is one of the most powerful ways to cultivate a connection to the Earth, your food, and your community.

It’s hard to feel disconnected with your hands in the Earth!

We have teamed up with expert growers who have all the best tips to help you grow these foods right at home, in all kinds of climates… it’s simpler than most people think!

The beauty of this relationship ignites a deep appreciation of how the world works. It rekindles all of your relationships and returns you to a place of feeling truly blessed… because you are. 😉

The Superfood Garden Summit, a free event that will be available to you right from home!

Weekly Garden Tip: 

To get to know your temperatures, start with the local data. Learn your average high and low temperatures for each month. Then, track the temperatures at your garden location. Over time, you’ll see how the temperature in your exact location varies from the data in your greater local area. Then you can fine tune your crop plan better.

Dear Arti:

Question: How to start fall plants in 103 degree temps. My most pressing issues involve the climate extremes we are having. Extremely hot and dry, dry, dry. I am in south Mississippi. I would like a fall garden but it is entirely too hot for anything to get started I think. – Lucy

Answer:

Hi Lucy,

Very Good Question! If you’re in Southern Mississippi and your temperatures are that hot, you’re still very much in the summer season and may need to plant your fall garden starts later than those in different climates.

However, if your temperatures go from 103F to fall temperatures (45-65 F roughly) within a few weeks, then you’ll want to start as many of your fall garden plants as you can indoors. Kale, chard, spinach, beets, and other cool and cold weather crops can be started indoors.

Your root crops–carrots, radish, turnips, etc.–(aside from beets) don’t like to be transplanted because there is too much disturbance on the root systems when transplanting. So, you can do one of two things:

Start them in the ground as late as you can. Double the depth of planting to protect them from the heat and dry. To keep them moist, you can use a trick from Tom Bartels who lives in a high altitude, extremely dry area of Colorado. Soak the seeds for 3 days (rinsing every 6 hours or so).

Then, make a corn starch gel, mix the seeds in the cornstarch and using a piping bag, pipe the seeds into the ground in rows.

Alternatively, you might experiment by planting those root crops in soil blocks indoors. Soil blocks are less disruptive to roots during the transplant process, so you might try that so you can start them indoors in a cooler environment, and then transplant outdoors when ready.

I hope that helps, Lucy!
