Planting A Vegetable Garden

Planting a vegetable garden can be a fulfilling and wholesome experience for everyone. Whether you want to grow one for the process or if you want just to have a little extra food that you know is made without GMO’s, growing a vegetable garden is no small task.  Luckily with Green Thumb, not only do we have the tools to help you but we also have all the knowledge you need for growing a vegetable garden.

How to Plant A Vegetable Garden

How to Plant a Vegetable Gardens

Plan Small — If it is your first vegetable garden, it can be very easy to bite off more than you can chew. Because of this, we want to plan small. So if you have a big plot of land, only section off a third of it. This is not an endeavor that you will do and complete in a matter of moments; this is a timed investment of several years.

Till the Topsoil — Next, contrary to the emphasis on planting, we will be working on making sure the soil is properly tilled and ready for growth. If you are planting in the middle of a walk way or a place with lots of weeds and grass, you want to break up the compacted dirt so that it is loose as well as ensure that there will be no root strangulation. One of the best ways to deal with top soil is to buy a soil knife, which you can read more about by clicking here.

Set The Seeds — Now that we have sectioned the land and tilled the soil, it is time for you to begin planting a vegetable garden. You want to find high-quality seeds that are compatible with the seasons you experience and the soil you have.

Feed the Soil — Finally; you want to feed the soil with healthy, gmo-free fertilizer properly. While it might be a good start to use Roundup and other similar products, but you want to make the timely investment and avoid Monsanto products entirely.
