Take a Spin in the Vegetable Garden

March 2, 2010 by

Is your head spinning with all the information out there? If you want to simplify things, try The Vegetable Garden Wheel, edited by one of America’s leading horticulturists, Ruth Rogers Clausen. The wheel offers an education for new vegetable gardeners, including suggestions on siting your garden, deciding what to grow, tips on harvesting and planting your garden, and simple recipe ideas. It features 20 popular vegetables including carrots, radishes, tomatoes, onion, garlic, mesclun salad mix, green beans and more. Printed on long-wearing weather resistant plastic disks, you can select from 9 Garden Wheels, including Perennial Garden , Annual Garden, Herb Garden, Shade Garden Wheel, Bulb Garden, Flowering Houseplants, and a Garden Calendar.

$5.00 at The Urban Garden Shop.

    Is the vegetable garden wheel divided into planting or climate zones. We are in zone 9 (semi – arid) with maximum 16-18 inches of annual rainfall. Thank you so much, Pamela Howard

    Our Garden Wheels are generally designed for USDA Zones 4-8. However, if you have good irrigation and can shield your plants from the hot midday sun, then you will probably be ok with many of the vegetables on the Garden Wheel. I will pass your question onto Ruth Clausen herself. She is out of the country right now. Thanks for your question.
