This is the CPHP June Garden Education Podcast Part 1. Listen in for information about gardening in USDA Hardiness Zones 5 and 6 that depending upon your source, Chicago is located in. For more information contact Orrin Williams, Food Systems Coordinator CPHP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some of the topics covered in the episode:
USDA Hardiness Zone Map
The Heirloom Collard Project
What to Plant in June
Preparation for Fall Vegetable Gardening
I hope you have a great season! Yes while it seems counter-intuitive June and July are the time to prepare for a fall crop in Chicago. Our growing season is short but can be extended by growing in the spring and summer. We will be providing in-depth information about preparing for the fall gardening season in an episode coming up in late June.
Thank you for supporting CPHP!
