While I’ve been prepping for hurricanes for years — this is the first time I’ve had an active garden during an impending storm, so I put my thinking cap on and made a plan for my Northeast Florida garden. In this video, I’ll show you Step 3 of my 4 part plan that I’m taking to get ready for Hurricane Ian.

About Michelle in the Meadow
I am a suburban gardener located in zone 9A in Northeast Florida. I started growing in this suburban lot in 2019 and have expanded the garden yearly. In 2020 I started making Facebook Videos about the garden, and in 2022 created this YouTube channel. I enjoy making content about my garden, what I’m growing and learning, and from time to time, the general vlog, too.

We have a 300+ day growing season in our area. We are currently growing in many raised garden beds of various sizes. We grow along both sides of the house, in grow bags, in the ground, in Greenstalk vertical planters, and pots on the patio.
