Growing on the High Plains: Rotation! Rotation! Rotation!


It's a  new year, so what better time to start planning a vegetable garden? Today's episode of Growing on the High Plains will dig deep into best practices for gardeners in our region. While our seasons can be unique, there's one guiding gardening rule that always rings true: ROTATION! ROTATION! ROTATION!

To keep soil rich in nutrients, I'll discuss how to mix up the planting location for your veg varieties to optimize yields and fend off fungi, pests, and disease.

Just a note: This segment had a lot of help from a great book by Cathy Wilkinson-Barash entitled Prairie & Plains States Month-by-Month Gardening: What to Do Each Month to Have a Beautiful Garden All Year.
