How to Start Your Own Vegetable Garden

Are you ready to start your gardening adventure? Gardening is great for many reasons such as growing your own food, stress-relief, and it makes a wonderful hobby. If you're just getting started on your vegetable garden, then these tips might help get you off to a successful start.

 

BED TYPES

Make sure that you decide early what sort of bed types that you need or want to use. There are a few choices.

  • Raised Beds

  • Pots

  • Directly in Soil

Determining what bed type you're going to use may affect where you're going to have to plot out your garden. There are a variety of options you can buy, or you can use that handy side to create your own beds for your garden.

EASY STARTER VEGETABLES

Some vegetables are easier and less demanding than others. A few examples of beginner-level plants are tomatoes, bell peppers, and potatoes, but there are plenty more to choose from. You'll want to stay away from broccoli or cauliflower until you feel more confident with your growing skills.

KNOW YOUR PLANTING ZONE

Unfortunately, we all aren't given the perfect conditions to grow every type of vegetable under the sun, so you'll want to know about your climate and planting zone. If you live in a colder region with less sunlight, you'll end up having a harder time growing plants that require high heat and loads of sunlight. Each planting zone differs in the timing of when to plant your vegetables.

PICK THE RIGHT LOCATION

Before you put your seeds into the ground make sure that you've chosen the right location for your garden to grow. You'll want to factor in how much sunlight the plot will receive and whether you can maintain the condition of the soil where you're planting. This will make a huge difference in the results you'll yield from your garden.
