Setting up a vegetable garden

Setting up a vegetable garden can be both challenging and enjoyable although you may find the experience somewhat difficult to begin with. There are some difficulties but the end result is easily achieved. You need to set goals just as you would in any project.

Choose only vegetables that you like and enjoy eating. This will ensure that you begin your garden in the right frame of mind. You will treat the garden more as a hobby rather than a job. When the vegetables arrive on your dinner table you will know that your investment has paid off.

Investigate the space required for the type of vegetable you will be growing. This will give you an overall picture of the amount of ground needed and will ensure you don’t cramp certain vegetables. If possible prepare more space but if unavailable consider growing some types in containers. Should space be limited you may need to reconsider some vegetables you intend growing.

Establish your area, preferably a sunny spot and prepare the ground by turning the soil, composting and mulching. The soil should be very well prepared and it is important that you find an area with plenty of sun. You can now begin your planting.

Ensure that you plant vegetables appropriate for a growing season. As an example, potatoes, peas, cabbages and turnips should be planted for harvesting in autumn or spring. Squash, cucumbers and eggplant should be considered for the hot summer months

Seeds can be purchased from nurseries, garden and hardware stores. You can even order seeds online should you encounter difficulties locally. You will require seeds that have been harvested within the past year. January and February are the best months to order online. Seeds can be started indoors then transplanted outdoors in early spring.
