Spring is nigh upon us, and if you want to plant a home garden, now is the time to start thinking about it. Commercial agriculture is one of Idaho's claim to fame, and lucky for you, those conditions are great for personal gardening as well. For those of us who are just beginning our gardening journey, the whole process can be daunting. Katie Battazzo of Front Yard Fresh is our garden coach who is guiding us through a major from-scratch home garden project, and she's just the person to share with you the things you should be thinking about now to set yourself up for success. What grows well in Idaho? When should you start planting? Which crops can be harvested multiple times? Which flowers should you pair with different crops to manage pests? All these questions and more will be answered in this episode.
