One of the best things about having an edible garden is going to your refrigerator and always finding what you need, right? Fresh vegetables will always be there for your use. So, you will be happy to know that your family eats natural and nutritious food. Another great thing about it, is that you will also save lots of money from not buying vegetables from the market.
We are going to give you some tips of how to create an amazing edible garden.
Plant a single raised bed and see how it will turn out. You can grow many things in a small tiny space, but it takes time to get things going. Also, plan your edible garden. You will need to consider the space available, as well as the time you are ready to spend on your gardening. Then, decide on what types of plants you want to grow and if they can receive the right amount of water and light.
Remember that the soil is the most important for your garden, so make sure you pick the best soil. Instead of buying the cheapest one, get compost-rich organic soil. If you are just starting a garden as a beginner, choose some easy-to-grow crops like mint and chives, kale, tomatoes, zucchini etc. You can also choose whether you will plant seeds or seedlings. If you grow vegetables from seed, you will save more money.
Good garden tools are another must for a well-established and successful edible garden. However, don’t worry you don’t need many of them. Even having a good pair of garden gloves, a trowel and weeder can help you do the work. When you plant something, you must not forget to label it (the crop, the variety and the planting date should be added) if you don’t want to sow the same place twice before seeds emerge.
