What is the best location for a vegetable garden?
- Most vegetables need about an hour of sunlight a day, the more sun they get, the more vegetables you have.
- Soil – Vegetable roots need soft soil, and with true PH, I added a picture of correct PH levels for each vegetable.
It is important that water is drainage, we do not want too much water to stack up. be sure to fertilize it before planting new vegetables.
- Environment – Vegetable garden environment is also important.
We don’t want to plant in areas that are prone to flooding in the winter, areas that tend to have strong winds in the fall, a place that tends to dry.
We want to give plants the optimal environment to live.
I recommend you to build a wooden base, to create a more controlled environment.
How big should my first garden be?
Good things come in small packages.
As your first vegetable garden, I recommend the order of 10X10 feet.
Start small and test yourself if you are able to maintain the vegetable garden.
A successful vegetable garden can feed about 4 people during the summer.
What grows in each season?
As we go to the market we do not see the whole variety of vegetables all year.
Each vegetable has different growing conditions, and we want to coordinate the planting according to the seasons.
Artichokes, Asparagus, Fava Beans, Fiddleheads, Garlic Scapes, Morels, Nettles, Pea Greens, Snap Peas, Snow Peas, and Pea Pods, Stinging Nettles.
Summer – my favorite season 🙂
Basil, Blackberries, Blueberries, Boysenberries, early summer, Cantaloupes, late summer, Chickpeas, Chile Peppers, Corn, Cucumbers, Gooseberries, Mangos, Marionberries, Peaches, Plums and Pluots, Raspberries, Summer Squash, Tomatoes, Watermelons, Zucchini
Fall – Artichokes, Cranberries, Edamame, Pears, Pumpkins, Quinces
Winter – Clementines, Mandarins, Pomelos, Tangerines
How do you grow the best vegetable garden?
In addition to choosing the right location, selecting tools and more.
In addition, I will provide you with some tips that my wife and I have learned over the years.
- Use quality seeds – You do not want to start growing and discover that half the amount of seeds did not develop into a plant
- Water properly – You don’t want to submerge the vegetables in the water, or dry them.Tip – I put a finger into the ground, if it’s moist then that’s enough, watering the vegetable garden is recommended early in the morning.
- Timing – It is important to plant the vegetables at the right time of year, and also harvest them when they are ready, every plant in the world has planting dates, this is listed on the seed packing you purchased.
