Planning Your Vegetable Garden
To have that lush garden full of delicious fruits and veggies come summertime, you’ve got to make sure your seeds have the best possible growing environment. Nothing accomplishes this more than taking a little time to plan your garden.
The two most important factors to consider are space and the types of fruits, vegetables and herbs you want to plant. Some fruits and vegetables [e.g. tomatoes, green peppers, potatoes, onions] can be grown in a pretty small space. Others need several feet to ‘spread out’ and grow properly such as peas, beans, squash, melons, and pumpkins. So before you plant, decide on how big or small you want your garden to be, and read the back of the seed packets to learn how much planting space is needed.
