Carson Arthur is everyone's favorite gardener. Several years ago he bought a small plot of land two hours outside of the city to try his hand at growing his own food and keeping his own chickens and bees. As a gardener by trade, and with a childhood spent on an apple farm, he had some experience to back him up--and yet even he made mistakes! Now he's sharing his experiences, no holds barred, so you don't do the same. From the good (perfect giant pumpkins) to the bad (frostbitten eggplants) to the downright disastrous (buried cable lines), it's all here to make sure you avoid #gardenfails and instead achieve a whole lot of #gardenwins!
