You know deep down that you are paying too much for green peppers and cucumbers. You feel it deep within, and you can’t shake it. This is just the beginning. Soon you will be looking at produce in the grocery stores and wondering if you could grow your own. You might become judgmental and even naive, knowing that you can grow vegetables better than those sold in stores.
Congratulations. Congratulations! The world of gardening.
Before you start your first garden
You’re likely ready to get outside and plant stuff. That’s how you start, right? You’re going to need to cool off, hot shot. You’ll need to plan ahead before you grab your shovel or floral print work gloves.
You’re probably thinking, “But planning sounds boring.” You beg. You’re right, planning is important.
Here are a few reasons.
- A plan will help you maximize your efforts and increase the yield per hour.
- You can choose the best plants for your space and how to plant them.
- Plan in advance to avoid any problems, such as a lack of nutrients, when you are about to plant your first vegetable.
Here are some things to keep in mind when planning your garden:
You can get the most from your money and your time by planning your garden.
- First, don’t get too carried away. A small garden will make it easier for beginners. Gardening can be hard work. Make sure you are able to manage what you plant.
- The second is to ensure that your plants have adequate space and that you can reach everything easily. Although this may seem counterintuitive to the previous suggestion, I’m serious. To get the correct amount of nutrients and light, plants need to have enough space between them. Also, plants that are taller than others can shade plants that are smaller, which could cause them to lose the light they need. You should ensure that you have enough space for each plant to thrive, and account for their size once they are fully grown.
- The third thing is to choose the right location. You’ll want your garden to have sufficient space and easy access.
