We’re in the process of filming a new 7-part free e-course series. This is the second one. I’ll be posting each episode to the blog over the next few weeks. Once we’ve filmed all seven, I’ll be transferring them to webpages and will also make them available in the members’ area.
Succession planting allows you to achieve a maximum harvest year-round from your growing area while maintaining a living plant cover at all times to feed the soil microbiology.
In this video, market gardener Dan removes his fava beans and replaces them with winter cabbage transplants.
This video covers:
– How to remove existing crops with minimal soil disturbance, and why that’s important
– Examples of how to recycle and reuse your crop residues
– Factors to consider when planting or transplanting your replacement crops.
The winter cabbage that Dan is transplanting is a January King variety called Marabel. This variety can overwinter and withstand temperatures down to -15°C (5°F) in wind protected areas.
