Start a Vegetable Garden

By | May 19, 2014

A vegetable garden is the perfect teacher.  It teaches you how to provide food for yourself and your family.  But, if done in haste and without some direction, it can quickly become your master.  Grow a vegetable garden on your terms.

Why don’t more people grow vegetable gardens?

When thinking of gardening, what comes to mind?  How about words like: Weeding, back pain, soil preparation, tilling, etc…

But, it doesn’t have to be so difficult to start a vegetable garden.  There are resources to help develop gardening techniques that prevent a lot of these problems.

One such resource is a method called “Square Foot Gardening.”  The book titled “All New Square Foot Gardening, Second Edition: The Revolutionary Way to Grow More In Less Space” will help you get started.  This book has sold more than two million copies and its instruction has been taught all over the world.

This book teaches how to:

  • Plan Your Garden
  • Build garden boxes and structures
  • Prepare soil mixes
  • How to plant the garden
  • How to grow and harvest the food
  • Vertical gardening techniques
  • How to extend the season
  • Special gardens

Garden vs Grocer

I am a big believer that homegrown food is better than store bought on many levels.  I offer the following reasons:

  1. It tastes better
  2. It is less expensive to start a vegetable garden than it is to buy them from the store
  3. The vegetables are fresher
  4. The experience of gardening is priceless

If you have any questions, I’d be happy to help out 🙂  Just leave them below!
