Grow Your Own Food: A Beginners Guide to Gardening

Growing your own food may be intimidating, but could become a hobby that saves you money and trips to the grocery store. If you have outside space, gardening can be a rewarding way to add some delicious ingredients to your everyday meals.

Choose the right location

Determine what size garden works best for you. You can start small and grow as you learn. Purchase a raised bed and plant your rows, ensuring they receive enough sunlight and protection.

Pick your plants

There are “cool-season” vegetables, which include lettuce and spinach, and “warm-season” vegetables which include peppers and tomatoes. Determine what vegetables you enjoy eating the most and research the season they grow best in. Invest in high-quality seeds and plan where they’ll go ahead of time.

Keep your records

Pay close attention to how your garden grows and take notes of adjustments to make in the future. Your garden will have its own unique conditions, and noting your observations can heighten the probability of success for the future.
