Rules of thumb for planting in your garden: Plant seeds roughly 3 times as deep as the diameter of the seed, unless otherwise directed on the package. Garden Planning Step 3: What are you going to grow in? Because growing in the ground is…well…on the ground, that can be a long way to bend down! Clear the area of weeds and other debris, such as rocks, sticks, etc. Organic Vegetable Gardening for Beginners: Planning Your Garden No matter the size of your garden, a successful growing season starts way before you plant your first seed —you gotta plan!

Easy-to-grow vegetables: If you plant at the right time of the year, these vegetables are almost foolproof: broccoli, bush beans, cucumber, eggplant, lettuce, peas, potatoes, squash, Swiss chard, and tomatoes. Shop yard and estate sales for bargains on real metal tools, or visit your local garden center. Definitely experiment, but make sure to do it with vegetables you know your family will eat. Family Fun: Gardening is a fun family project for everyone to get involved in. And to keep your vegetable garden productive, you can use a few easy methods to prevent pests and other problems.

If an insect or disease does get out of hand, treat it effectively without disrupting the other life in your garden, which includes everything from good bugs to birds. And there are some varieties of radish that are ready to go in just a few weeks, so you can keep harvesting and planting more all through the season. In flat earth gardens, use a stirrup hoe aka a loop hoe or a similar tool to rid the garden area of weeds. Foliar feeds like compost tea can be added to give plants extra nutrition and a dose of healthy microbes while watering. Another good option is to do one-third screened topsoil, one-third sand, and one-third compost.

Building your garden might be as simple as setting out a few purchased containers, or it might be as complicated as double digging a half acre of your backyard.

A sub-par location can result in sub-par veggies! Nonetheless, eat up and enjoy your new-found success as a vegetable gardener! On the flip side, a single tomato plant can grow months worth of fruit, depending on the variety.

You can also use this planting calendar which will help you plan out when you need to plant and harvest your crops. Limited growing space: By adding raised beds and aisles into the mix, you are inherently reducing your growing space.

Some of these characteristics can be determined just from looking at the soil. Wind can both damage crops and dry them out.

Testing and Amending the Soil You Have By far the most affordable way to go is to use the soil you already have on hand. What would you do if the electricity grid temporarily went down in your city and no grocery stores could stay open? More easy vegetables to grow Most root vegetables like carrots, turnips and radishes are hardy and can be planted directly in the garden early in the spring and left until fall.

The basics for success in any garden are sun, soil, and water. Advertisement Like beans and cucumbers, zucchini plants are prolific, whether they are grown in containers or directly in mounded soil.

There are ways to help fix drainage issues— you can create a base in your garden of sand and gravel with raised beds or containers on top. It is easy to get carried away by the photos and descriptions of all the new-to-you varieties and plants!

In addition, you can plant flowers that attract these insects. You can always size up to a larger pot and fertilize your plants, but that can be a bit of a pain.

Sun Exposure Probably the number one thing to consider when choosing your garden location is sun exposure.

Additional tips: After planting, add compost to the soil surface to feed the plants and continue every month during the growing season. Direct sunlight means light contacting the leaves of the plant, not ambient light.

Run your rows north to south to take full advantage of the sun. As you probably know from baking and carving, there are different types of pumpkins and some are simpler to grow than others. Yes, there is still snow on the ground, but I curl up with my mug of tea in front of the fire and get to work.

To learn which plants grow best directly seeded in the garden and which plants are better as transplants, visit the seed starting calendar. Keep tools clean and sharp, just like you should treat a good knife.

Once you give them these and water them regularly, they grow almost like weeds. Personally, I like to do a little bit of both seed starting and purchased seedlings. The tops can be harvested too as these plants grow.

Containers be heavy: Once containers are filled with soil and plants, they can be really heavy to move!
