Start with a Small Garden
Always put your 30 % in any business when you start it. This saying is as good for gardening, as it is for gardening. You are a beginner and you will be testing many things. So its always better to take a manageable start.
One of the most common mishaps in gardening vegetables is that, we start a big garden and we always end up growing too much. This will eventually result in lots of precious and hard grown vegetables going in waste. So first thing first, always go for a small space and do keep your needs in your mind. Always grow what can need and what you can manage.
How and where to plant Vegetables
Where to plant is the more important than what to plant so we will discuss it first. Planning your garden is very much easy and if you are growing vegetables than you need to prepare your land for it. Vegetables need more than 6 hours of sunlight on daily basis, so better start it where your garden has no shades and always remember the rule, the greater the harvest the better the taste.
All plants need good clean soil and healthy land fill to grow. While planting vegetables, good land and soil is more than necessary. Make sure you enrich your soil with all the natural ingredients, and your land must have proper drainage.
For fertilizing your soil you should use all natural fertilizers. You can buy it from your local organic store. Make sure you leave proper space for each plant so that it can grow easily. For example if you are planting corn you need more space, because it can over shadow other vegetable plants nearby. So always remember of you are planting Corn you should have a separate space for it.
Always buy high quality seeds; they will grow into good vegetables. Don’t ever think about saving some bucks for low quality seeds. You will be wasting all your money and efforts if you compromise on quality of seed.
Space you need for planting vegetables
A good size for a beginner level garden is almost 10×16 feet. This size is suitable for crops that are easy to grow. As we are starting it on a beginner level so we should first plant some easy growing vegetables. In a plot size mentioned above you can easily grow vegetables for a family of 4 people. You can have a little extra, which you can give away to your friends and family.
Steps to remember:
Your garden should have 11 rows and each row should have a length of 10 feet. Keeping in view the sunlight you need, your rows should run from north to south. Vegetables that may yield more than one crop per season are beans, beets, carrots, cabbage, kohlrabi, lettuce, radishes, rutabagas, spinach, and turnips.
Suggested Plants for your garden
The vegetables suggested below are common, productive plants, but you’ll also want to contract your local cooperative extension to determine what plants grow best in your local area. Think about what you like to eat as well as what’s difficult to find in a grocery store or farmers’ market.
(Each veggie links to a growing guide.)
- Tomatoes—5 plants staked
- Zucchini squash—4 plants
- Peppers—6 plants
- Bush beans
- Lettuce, leaf and/or Bibb
- Marigolds to discourage rabbits!
(Note: If this garden is too large for your needs, you do not have to plant all 11 rows, and you can also make the rows shorter.)
