Are your tired of having mixed success in your garden?

Some days, gardening feels rewarding and productive. But on others, you feel frustrated because you don’t always understand why things are going wrong. You’re unsure of what each plant actually needs to flourish, you’re not having any luck with certain vegetables, and you feel like you’re not getting enough of a yield to make all the hard work worth it.

The Essential Guides are designed to help you skip over common mistakes and so you can experience the simple pleasure of seeing something you planted grow and produce food for your family. It’s a sense of accomplishment like no other!

Each guide breaks down a specific (and often tricky to grow) vegetable and walks you through the process of growing it successfully- from start to finish. You’ll make the most of your garden space by getting the best results possible from each vegetable plant you grow.



Each guide focuses on one specific vegetable and covers the following:

    • Buying transplants vs. starting your own seeds: which is the best option for each vegetable
    • Important tips and techniques for starting the seeds successfully with full color photos of the process
    • Variety matters: why vegetable variety is one of the keys to successful growing and a full explanation of my favorite varieties and where to buy them
    • Step by step directions with full color photos explaining exactly when and how to plant each vegetable so you’re starting off with a higher chance of success
    • Everything you need to know about each vegetable’s special needs: how to help the plant flourish throughout the season, best options for mulching, trellising and watering, how to know when to harvest, and more…
    • Preserving your bumper crop: the easiest and quickest ways to put away each vegetable for use in delicious meals all year round
    • My favorite meal planning resources for healthy, fresh recipes – I use them every week!
    • Live links to my top recipes for using each vegetable in tasty meals

Each Essential Guide includes:

  • an electronic PDF book (eBook) with color photos and step by step directions
  • links to all supplies on the internet so you can see exactly what I’m referring to and where to buy it
  • a simple layout that’s great for reading on your computer or printing out

My first attempt at vegetable gardening was overwhelming. Since learning Megan’s techniques I've been able to quadruple my garden's size. This year I planted a bench in the middle of it all so I can sit and enjoy the view!

What if I’m just starting out with gardening?

The Essential Guides will help you skip over many of the mistakes that gardeners make with peppers, onions and garlic.
