I am writing this article giving you some tips for your vegetable garden space since it has been a source of happiness for my grandfather. I have seen him planting vegetables and fruits of his choice and it used to bring smiles on his face when they used to ripen. Here are some ways by which you can start your own garden in your sweet home;
Assess your time and decide what to plant:
Gardening obviously requires a lot of time since without taking care of your grass seeds and watering them on time you cannot get the desired product. Thus you need to figure out the time available to you. If you would only like to plant seeds once in a year so that you can only get results throughout the year then you should go for the vegetables such as tomatoes, squash and peppers which give produce throughout the year. On the other hand if you would like to have variety of fruits for summer and winter, then you will have to spare the time and effort of planting separate seeds before every type of season e.g. strawberry seeds before winter.
Fix a space for plantation of vegetables:
After deciding what you want to plant, the nest step is to decide the space you need for each type of fruit or vegetable. For example strawberry plants can be sufficiently grown alongside your bushes at the lawn corners, so they do not always need a wide area. On the other hand if you want to grow tomatoes or potatoes in quantities enough for your home usage so that you won’t have the need to buy them again, then you will need say an area of 10×10 square foot to do the need full.
Prepare the soil and choose the right location:
Now the technical part of planting fruits and vegetables come. Every garden space has a perfect spot where the soil is rich and full of minerals and receives sufficient sunlight for the growth of plants. You need to pick the best spot in terms of best soil and sunlight and make sure the sunlight is not too bright to burn your plants such as often in South Asian countries. Now determine the amount of water which each plant will need for best growth and plenty of produce making your garden a shop for vegetables.
