Some basic tips for vegetable gardening
The purpose of this hub is to give you some suggestions to make sure you have a nice vegetable garden.
Tip #1 - Make sure your garden has plenty of sunlight.
Most vegetables need a full days sun,(8 hours), so keep that in mind when you select where you are going to put your garden. It should be where you get the maximum amount of sun daily.
Tip #2 - Make sure you have access to plenty of water.
This may seem like an obvious thing but it is often overlooked by beginning gardeners,plants need water so you must have it readily available. I recommend watering twice a day,once in the morning and just before sundown.
Also when you do water your garden take your time and make sure that you get a good soak,don't just spray the garden actually soak it down to the root.
It is very difficult to over water a garden.
Tip #3 - Choose a flat,level plot for your garden.
The main reason why you want a flat surface is so you don't have water collecting in your garden and you don't have to worry about over watering it.
Tip #4 - Make sure and bust up or till the ground good.
When starting out on your garden you want to till or bust up the ground real good to where the roots of the plants will have no problem as the plants root system grows, if you don't have your ground busted up where it is too tight,many vegetables will not thrive because they won't be able to have a good root system.
Tip #5 - Make sure and have a fence around your garden.
This is extremely important if you live in a rural area that has wildlife.
It would be a shame to put all the work into getting your garden right just to feed rabbits or deer and trust me they will eat it all up and not feel guilty.
Tip #6 - Use the proper fertilizer and mulch.
When you set your plants out make sure you know how long it take the plants to mature and use the proper fertilizer to get the most vegetables from your garden.
I personally use Bonemeal & Miracle Grow and they both work great for gardening.
Also use mulch, the reason why you want to use mulch is to cover the loose ground to help seal in moisture and also to help keep weeds out.
If you have the proper border around your garden you may want to try rubber mulch,it will last forever as long as it doesn't float away.
