    Great presentation as always, Melissa. Definitely want to put up more food this year, but don't want to overwhelm myself by trying too much. Picking one or two things for a year's worth of growing and preserving, and building up from there, is a great idea!

    I always enjoy Melissa's presentations, and her garden book is great!

    So glad you're growing more this @Molly Pantalone and picking a few items to focus on! @Mary Linda Bittle thank you so much, and so glad you're finding the book helpful! What crops are you guys growing a year's worth of this year?

    I typed summit to get your work sheet & chart, but I could not find it.

    May I ask for how to get it or email to me: [email protected]?

    I'm concentrating on cucumbers (for pickles) and potatoes this year.

    Hello, I am so glad I chose your presentation to watch. I am a 1st time summit participant and working full time I could not spend as much time as I wanted listening and connecting. Thank you so much for making this easy to understand for us beginners!

    @Melissa Norris I am moving from Idaho back to Missouri soon. I've been taking care of the fruit trees and herbs that I've planted here, but it's only just now time to get a garden in the ground in this part of Idaho. And too late to do much but wait for fall crops in Missouri. But I'm making my plans.

    Hi, Melissa. Wherever you speak, I will be there to listen and learn! I was happy to see it was a new talk, though listening to one I previously heard just drills the info deeper into this brain that seems to be resisting getting this important info. I know Marjorie is going to have an encore weekend, and I'd like to listen to it again since I can't find my notes! :( Thanks again! Always a pleasure, and Marjorie, thank you for inviting Melissa and all these other great speakers. I really enjoyed this summit and look forward to the next. And I LOVE the live interviews as well.

    Thank you Melissa, you have a lot of excellent points! I am focusing right now on learning lettuce greens. But plan to do the worksheet you offered and figure out how much of the produce we buy to plant. I would love to get away from frozen veggies in plastic bags.
