TOP 10 Tips on Starting Your Own Vegetable Garden

1. Choosing Which Edible to Grow

If you are a beginner in vegetable gardening it is best to choose edibles that are easy to grow. Some of the best choices are lettuce, tomato, sugar snap peas, beans, radish, summer squash, rhubarb, chives, basil, thyme etc. But, we advice you to start small. This means planting just as much as you need. You don’t want to end up wasting food and feeling overwhelmed by your garden.

Think about what your family eats. Also, have in mind that some veggies keep providing throughout the whole season while others produce only once. Planning is the key for a successful vegetable garden.

    Hi, Marieme, I’m not with this site, I was looking for any useful gardening tips. But, anyways, try your local ag extension office. They can be a beginner/small farmers best asset when it comes to getting started. They usually have a great team of people that can help guide you through the whole process, from what will grow best for your area, help you with testing your soil, when to harvest your crop and the best ways to put up what you harvest. A lot of people don’t realize that their ag extension office is there for small farmers, also, not just the big time cash crop farmers. They may even also offer some gardening classes for beginners. I hope this helps you out.
