A thought out and well tended garden can provide food for a household all year long. Most home gardeners agree that fresh produce from the garden tastes SO much better than store-bought veggies. And preserving them to be enjoyed when they’re not in season by freezing, canning, or dehydrating, makes the home garden rewarding year-round. These vegetables not only provide food budget savings but also are much more nutritious.
If you’re a beginner vegetable gardener, here are basics on vegetable garden planning: site selection, plot size, which vegetables to grow, and when to grow them.
Keep in mind that it’s better to have a small, productive garden than to be frustrated by a big one!
One of the common errors for beginners is planting too much too soon. If that’s the case, you can lose all your little seedlings to a late frost. Also keep in mind, that plants that aren’t heat resistant need to be started before the last frost.
