Creating a vegetable garden is a great way to ensure you make use of your backyard, get plenty of servings of vegetables each day, and reduce the amount of plastic waste you generate from shopping at the grocery store. Also, nothing beats the taste of food you have grown yourself!
Here are 5 Tips to Creating a Vegetable Garden:
1. Choose the Ideal Location
In a few words, the sunnier the better. Your vegetables will need plenty of sunlight to help them grow. With a sunny veggie garden, you can plant almost any variety of vegetable. The spot for your veggie garden should also have good quality soil, and be protected from the family dog – dogs sure love the smell of soil and may end up digging up all your veggies! You can always use some garden netting to keep the dog out. Make sure your spot is easily accessible to a water source so you can water your garden with ease.
