VZ 190: The Creative Vegetable Gardener’s “Smart Start Garden Planner”


Spring will be here before we know it, so it’s time to start planning this year’s gardens. With that in mind, on this episode of the Vegetarian Zen podcast, we welcome back Megan Cain, otherwise known as the Creative Vegetable Gardener. Megan first visited with us on episode 113, way back in August of 2015. This time around, we’re excited to announce that Megan has just published an interactive ebook (with a print version as well) called the Smart Start Garden Planner that will help you learn the basics of garden planning, to include laying out your garden, choosing what to grow, buying seeds, knowing when and how to plant, and much more!
