Updated Gardening App ContentSuffering from spring fever? You’re not alone — and your urge to get out and get your garden growing can be (at least slightly) remedied by reading and improving your gardening techniques. After all, proper planning and background knowledge are two major components to a successful gardening season.

Our Food Gardening Guide digital resource lets you take the Garden Know-How and Crop at a Glance departments from MOTHER EARTH NEWS magazine with you wherever you go. I’ve found myself re-reading "13 Ways to Beat the Heat" as a coping mechanism for a mid-March surprise snowfall — I can’t wait to be worrying about water and shade instead of frost protection and ground preparation!

We have updated our Food Gardening Guide this year to include all of our latest articles on crop-specific instruction and general gardening techniques. We’ve added a guide to growing your own sweetener, various colors of eggplant, and more! 

The best part? You can have all of this great organic food gardening info right at your fingertips, absolutely free.
