Garden / June 16, 2018 /
After deciding to grow your own vegetables, choosing the right plants for your space may be the most important decision you will make. Many plants will require a minimum of 6 hours of direct sun per day and others will prefer partial shade during the hottest days of the summer. Assess your space, choose wisely and good luck.
If you do not want to opt for drip irrigation, try and site your vegetable garden near a water spigot. You will be more likely to water if you do not have to drag the hose out. This final consideration is essential. Vegetables need a soil rich in organic matter. Soil is important to the growth of all plants, but more so with vegetables, because even taste is affected by the quality of the soil. That is part of why wine from the same grape variety can vary from region to region and why some areas grow hotter peppers than others.
