Farm fresh vegetables are one of summers delights so why not grow your own. Here are some tips for planting a home vegetable garden. It’s best to plan your garden on paper first. Draw a diagram, mapping out each row according to height and plant requirements. The piece of land you choose should be relatively flat and should receive at least six hours of full sun each day. Clear any bushes, sticks or stones then use a tool to chop up grass and weeds. Make several passes on a shallow setting then adjust to deeper settings as you go until you’ve broken up the soil.
Now you’ll need to prepare the soil. You might want to consult the nursery as to the best organic materials to work with. Make the soil one last time and then rake it smooth. You sticks and string to mark each row you intend to plant, 16 inches between rows is a good width as it will allow for productive growth and give you room to tend your garden. Now turn a hoe at an angle and follow the string on each row to create area to plant in and isles to walk upon. Sow your seeds according to the depth and spacing instructions on the seed pockets then tag each row so you’ll know what to expect to sprout in each.
Climbing plants such as peas and beans will require additional sticks or trellises while veining plants such as cucumbers and melons will need to be planted in higher amounts of dirt. Water thoroughly with a gentle spray and then let mother nature do her thing. Come summer, you should have a bounty of farm fresh vegetables right at your own backyard. To plant your own vegetable garden, you’ll need seeds or seedlings, a tiller, organic material, garden sticks and string, a rake, a hoe and garden hose.
