The best thing about having an edible garden is that it allows you to have fresh vegetables to use for daily meals. So, you will be happy to know that your family eats natural and nutritious food. And you will also save some money from not buying vegetables from the market. You can make your own edible garden and there are many possible ways of how to do it.
So, since we are always here to give you the best gardening tips, today, we want to give you some tips of how to create one such garden. First of all you need to consider the space available, but even if you have a spacious garden, you can start small. Plant a single raised bed and see how it will turn out. Because, you can grow so much food in a tiny space and trust us it takes time to keep things going. Also, make sure to 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.
Soil is the most important for your garden, so make sure you pick the best one. Don’t buy the cheapest one, but instead find a compost-rich organic soil for your garden. If you are a beginner choose some easy-to-grow crops, such as mint and chives, kale, tomatoes, zucchini etc. Also, you can choose whether you will plant seeds or seedlings. If you grow vegetables from seed, you will save more money.
You cannot create an edible garden if you don’t have good garden tools. But 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. And yes whenever you plant something, make sure to label it. Add the crop, variety and planting date on a plant maker, because you may sow the same place twice before seeds emerge. And the plant makers will keep your garden organized.
