The Q&A Archives: new gardener

Question: I am just starting a veggie garden. I just want to know the dos and donts. What should I do first?

Answer: You will first want to find the sunniest area possible for your new vegetable garden and then prepare the soil by adding organic matter. Once the planting bed is prepared, choose the vegetables that you like eating. Then plant your veggies with the smallest near the edges and the tallest at the back of the garden so they won't shade out the rest. Keep the garden well watered, scout for insects and diseases on a daily basis, and feed the plants once or twice during the growing season. You should have a great harvest!
