More Garden Tips!

Getting your garden planned is work and fun. The number one tip that I can give is to not plant too early. Make sure the risk of frost is gone. Select easy veggies to grow that are your families favorites.

Some easy veggies to grow:
              Tomatoes
              Bush Beans
              Cucumbers
              Peppers
              Zucchini
              Squash
              Onions
              Lettuce
              Eggplant
              Peas
              Radishes
              Carrots

Check around online or ask a local nursery when the best time to plant for your area is. Plan out your garden with stakes that are labeled with each veggies name so that you know where you are going to plant them. Put in poles for the climbing plants. Keep the smaller plants grouped together and make sure you give the tomatoes plenty of room to sprawl. They will quickly take over a space, so let them have their room!

Water your garden in the early morning or evening. Let the water have time to soak in to get to the roots. Surface watering is not good. Your garden should get about 2 inches of water a week.

Thin out the seedlings as they start growing. Get rid of the weaker ones. This will allow the others to really grow and be healthier. Removing weeds often will also assure healthy veggies.You will have to be out in your garden often to weed it.

Invest in some rain barrels to catch rain water for watering your garden. This will save you money. Just a half inch of rain can fill a rain barrel. 

Get the whole family involved with the garden. Kids have a lot of fun in one. Let them have their own seeds and section to grow what they like. I let my Little Man have one every year and we found out that he has quite a green thumb. Pretty awesome and he really loves growing veggies.
