Do you want to grow and enjoy more vegetables in your garden this season? You actually can if you understand the practice of succession planting.

Succession planting is basically staggering your plantings so that you get a continuous harvest of a particular fruit/veggie, rather than all at once and then you’re done.

Here’s What You’ll Need

  • vegetable seeds or seedlings
  • a chart or notepad
  • a pen or marker

This gardening technique does not work equally well for all types of plants. It has been previously used successfully for green beans, beets, cucumbers, kale, lettuce, melons, radish, summer squash, sweet corn, carrots, cauliflower and turnips.

For each vegetable you can plant the next batch anything from 7 days to up to 3 weeks after the last one. If you plan your garden well, you will have a continuous harvest all summer long. For succession planting workshops get more information here
