As my thoughts are fully focused on the coming gardening season, I thought it was high time that I took the blog space to really detail how to make a vegetable gardening- right from the very beginning. It’s February, and while we can’t work in the yard yet, we can plan, and that makes this the perfect time to take you step-by-step through the process of planting vegetables.
It’s not hard. It’s really not, armed with a few basic tools, seeds, and dirt, anyone can plant a few seeds and reap a harvest. I hope to take some of the mystery out of the process and inspire others to take up vegetable gardening. There are few hobbies out there with such wonderful rewards- there’s nothing like pulling a carrot out of the dirt and handing it to your child. There’s nothing like pulling a tomato warm off the vine and sinking your teeth into it like an apple. There’s nothing like sweeping aside a few leaves of a cucumber plant, only to discover a whole army of delicious cucumbers just waiting to be sliced.
Let’s garden together, shall we?
