Growing your own vegetables can be one of the most satisfying and cost effective aspects of gardening. Even if you are not in love with flowers you can still be a gardener with vegetables. You first must choose the right spot for your garden area. Should be near a water source and easily accessable to your home.

it is best to layout your garden bed so you can access the plants without having to step into the garden bed itself. Walking ontop of your garden area will compact the soil, consider adding extra soil to create raised rows you can walk between to work in the garden. Most vegetables will need at least 6 hours of direct sunight each day.

Most vegetable gardens require about 1 inch of water per week. Some vegetables such as Squash may take a bit more to mature.

plants perform best when the water is applied as infrequent, deep irrigations rather than frequent, shallow waterings. Keeping a rain barrel near the garden is one way to make watering easier and more accessible.
