vegetable gardening guide
Do you need a vegetable gardening guide when you start to turn your lawn into vegetables
Really when you start out with a vegetable
gardening guide it will complicate matters and take your mind of the
purpose at hand. Which is growing
vegetables so you should really be planting
vegetables. You donít really need to know about Ph or NPK or the
other technical things, you can
If you want a vegetable gardening guide you should check them out in the winter when you are all cozy in front of the fire.
When spring gets here you should be rearing to go and that means getting seeds in the ground to see what will come up. To start - mow the lawn patch where you want to set up your garden as short as possible. This is to try and slow down the growth so your vegetable plants will grow up over the grass. I do recommend rolling out two pipes of drip irrigation about a foot apart because as summer warms up you will need to do some heavy duty watering.
Now to start off just throw some spinach seeds around where you want your garden to be.
Spinach will grow fast and act as a cover crop. Once the spinach is up you can eat it or use it as a mulch for your vegetable garden. After you have planted some spinach throw some other vegetables seeds around that you like, like carrots potatoes, broccoli and what ever you want to ear.
The golden rule is donít plant too many vegetables at one time or you will have plenty to eat. Space them out, after the first lot come up plant some more. Your vegetable gardening guide should be the vegetables that you want to eat, you shouldn't worry about all the planning that goes into a garden. The garden should evolve with the seasons.
