Today we’re visiting with Keegan Clifford, who is a vegetable gardener extraordinaire, producing huge amounts of beautiful produce. Keegan lives in Middletown, Maryland (Zone 7), a small town with just 4,500 residents, and he grows all of his vegetables in raised beds: twelve 6-foot by 3-foot beds and one 2-foot by 17-foot bed.

Even the most cold-tolerant vegetables won’t grow much during the short days of winter, so getting a January harvest is mostly about getting them nearly to the harvestable stage before it turns cold and then protecting them until you are ready to have them for dinner.
