Let's look at the top vegetable gardening tips to help you have the freshest looking and tastiest veggies in your area!
Who doesn't like fresh vegetables picked right from the garden?
You too can have a wonderful and healthy vegetable garden in no time with a little help.
First let us look at what is required for a good vegetable garden and what makes it grow.
Another good reason for having it close to your house is when vegetables of all sorts are ready to be picked, they will be in an accessible spot for you to harvest easily.
Almost all vegetable gardens require full sunlight to keep the garden healthy - be sure to read the directions on each seed packet.
Once you feel confident that you can handle your garden, experiment with delicate tomatoes and other vegetables that may require a little more attention or cultivating.
If you have the room, split the area into narrow beds and keep a path in between in order to have room to walk, plant, and pick your fresh vegetables and herbs. Follow the directions on the seed packets regarding how far apart to space your beds.
To create this great soil mix so your vegetable garden will flourish, use what is called the "dig" system.
This requires you to dig the soil and mix compost around your vegetable plants seasonally.
Another effective way to enhance your soil is to throw food scraps (peels, coffee grounds, tea bags, etc. but NO meat products) into your garden with worms and allow the worms to make compost naturally.
This is always recommended for the environmentalist or person who wants to be a green gardener.
They will thrive from the nutrients in the soil left behind from the prior year's crop.
If you aren't sure which pesticides are considered to be environmentally safe, ask your garden center expert.
It may be more important to water a lot in the initial planting stage and less as the vegetables begin to grow.
Vegetable gardens are the healthiest way to enjoy all the veggies you desire when you want them without a trip to the market.
