Now that you're harvesting from your garden, now what?
You've spent all this time planning, planting, and growing your garden, and if you're like many gardeners, you may find yourself asking question like:
- When is the best time to harvest a particular vegetable?
- Do I wash everything first, or not?
- Do I refrigerate it, or not?
- Which veggies need curing first, and what does that even mean?
- How do I prepare it for storage, whether that's short-term storage in my refrigerator until we eat it fresh, or long-term storage through freezing, canning, or dehydrating?
- If I want to start preserving long-term, how do I get started with the bare basic recipes?
Whether you want to make the most of your fresh harvest, you want to make preserving a way of life, or you fall somewhere in the middle, I want to invite you to this beta launch of my newest online education experience: Harvest to Kitchen.
Come alongside me as I harvest, prepare, and begin to preserve the harvest in my garden this year! And learn how to do the same for your own harvest!
Get started now!
In Harvest to Kitchen, you'll learn:
- The ideal time to harvest specific vegetables
- How to prepare them for use (some have steps you take right in the garden)
- Which vegetables need washed immediately and which do not because washing could increase spoilage potential
- Basic preserving skills, such as water bath canning, pressure canning, freezing, and dehydrating
- My go-to recipes for preserving
Which vegetables are covered in the course?
Immediately access lessons on lettuce, peas, onions, garlic, carrots, cucumbers, zucchini, and tomatoes (including salsa, paste, diced tomatoes, and sauce). In September 2020, green beans will be added.
In 2021, I plan to expand and add more vegetables as well as herbs and fruit -- and as a founding member, you'll be able to help me decide what to add!
If you're ready to make the most of the harvest you worked so hard to grow, join me in Harvest to Kitchen today!

I'm Jill and I am a US gardener in Arkansas, Zone 7b. I began my first garden in 2013 as a new stay-at-home mom wanting to save money on our food.
As I poured myself into learning, I found myself frustrated with the lack of gardening information for newbies like me. Still, I fell in love with gardening over the years, and I made it my mission to help other beginners find more understandable, accessible, science-based information.
My goal is to help beginners learn to grow a rewarding, productive garden!
