Gardening is not my specialty...it never has been. But that doesn't stop me from attempting to grow vegetables each year. This is our ninth year planting a vegetable garden and although I still feel like a beginner gardener, I have learned a few things along the way...
2. Start your seeds in early spring. Doing this helps get a jump start on the growing season. Plant your seeds in March in little pots or even egg cartons and keep them in a warm sunny spot. You don't have to do this. I often plant seeds directly in the ground - it just means you have to wait a little longer to enjoy your veggies.
3. Follow the seed spacing advice on the package. This gives your vegetables room to grow. Use a ruler or a locking tap measure to help with this.
5. Don't forget water makes things grow, grow, grow. So water when its hot and dry (often what I forget to do). Gardening expects recommend watering one or two inches per week with deep, infrequent watering to help deep roots grow.
Please share any gardening tips you have. I am always hoping to learn more.
