Vegetable Gardening

When the weather begins to warm and the days start to lengthen, most green thumbs begin to get the itch to begin working the soil in the garden. While there are a number of steps to complete before placing those seeds or plants in the ground for the season, most of the work is fairly straightforward and easy to understand. First, choose a sunny location for your garden bed. Next, prepare the soil by adding all of the necessary nutrients and ridding the area of dirt clumps and rock. Finally, plant your vegetable garden.

Using trellises, nets, strings, cages, or poles to support growing plants constitutes vertical gardening. Vining and sprawling plants, such as cucumbers, tomatoes, melons, and pole beans are obvious candidates for this type of gardening. Remember that a vertical planting will cast a shadow. Beware of shading sun-loving crops, but plant shade-tolerant crops near the trellises to take advantage of the shade. Plants grown vertically occupy much less space on the ground, and though the yield per plant may be ( low, the yield per square foot of garden space is high. Because vertically growing plants are more exposed than non-staked plants, they dry out quickly and may need to be watered frequently.

The selection of varieties of vegetables to grow should be largely influenced by those, which form one's daily fare throughout the season. Vegetables which are seldom purchased-unless it is because of there high price or scarcity-may not profitably be cultivated in the home garden. But in the case of high-priced products, then the home garden demonstrates its economic value as enabling one to indulge in otherwise unattainable luxuries. Plainly, then, one should grow in abundance those things of which most consumption is made.
