For a little light-hearted but instructional reprieve, I offer you this short story drawn with the talented mind and hand of my husband Brian @brianthompsonart. In 3 minutes it shows you:
1) how to construct a hugelkultur garden bed (if you want to try that);
2) What things you can successfully grow in shady spaces; and
3) what you can grow in a small sunny space (e.g. urban garden).
If you’re interested in learning more about hugelkultur garden construction, check out my post Making A Hugelkultur Garden. For more ideas about gardening now, watch Small Space Gardening: Let’s Talk Soil!, and What To Plant Now: A Sampling of Spring Seeds.
