Guest Expert: Give Us Your Gardening Questions for Kitchen Gardening Author Jennifer Bartley

As we've mentioned once or twice it's Garden Month here at The Kitchn, and we're starting it off next week with a full slate of reader questions answered by our friend and guest gardening expert Jennifer Bartley. Jennifer is the author of Designing the New Kitchen Garden: An American Potager Handbook, and she's currently working on a new book about eating out of the kitchen garden.

She has designed formal landscaping as well as kitchen gardens, and she has a strong practical knowledge of designing for the kitchen; she has designed two working year-round herb and vegetable gardens for restaurants in Columbus, Ohio. One of them is a vegan restaurant that relies very heavily on the garden that she designed for them.

We're thrilled to have her with us, and she is an excellent source of answers and ideas for your kitchen garden questions. Since it's the first week of the month, perhaps we should focus on getting your garden started, so if you have questions about the gardening startup or planning process, fire away!

But don't hold just for that - if you have another burning kitchen garden question, feel free to ask. We'll choose five questions and Jennifer will answer them next week. We'll give you a review of her first book, too - a really stunning and lovely book for kitchen gardeners.
