The following website link has a limited usefulness to a small segment of people: mainly to those doing some significant portion of retail sales of Market Garden produce, using small plots of land. These operations are sometimes described as "Market Farming:, "Mini-Farming", "Market Gardening", "CSAs", "Subscription Farms", "Membership Farms", or various other names.

The following URL links to a website tutorial with simple instruction on how to extend your growing season a month or two, increase your production yields by 20% to 1,000%. There are no products sold, no fees collected, just ideas real people are already using to grow a lot more than most people think are possible. The "free" website is provided by a webhost whom attaches random advertisement to each page as the price of sponsoring "free" webpages. Since no income is generated by giving away free ideas and free tutorials, there is no incentive to pay an no-ads webhost hundreds of dollars per year. This is the kind of information I would like to obtain from extension-agent websites, but it is absent from those, so I provide this free service to fill in the gaps.

If you get significant value from this website, please send the author an email to LionKuntz at Contact through this email address for links to other tutorials and research pages.
