Growing your own veggies isn’t just satisfying, it’s also a great way to save money, try new varieties not found in your local grocery store and make sure your diet is full of fresh, nutritious food. And because today’s edible gardens come in a variety of shapes and sizes, from traditional in-ground beds to container gardens to vertical gardens and more, there’s a way for everyone to get growing.
If you plan to plant your garden in the ground, start prepping your space in the fall by using a spade or tiller to loosen the soil. This can be done in spring as well but getting it ready in the fall allows for better winter drainage, giving you a bed that will be nice and dry in the spring and easier to work.
When selecting a location for your vegetable garden or containers, choose a location that is convenient to your house for easier tending. Avoid locations shaded by large trees or buildings.
