Heads up for a Veggie Garden

“Vegetables for human consumption” or vegetable farming. Families started growing vegetables for their own consumption or to trade locally many years ago. Over the past 100 years a new technique was known called the raised bed gardening, which has increased yields from small plots of soil without the need for commercial, energy-intensive fertilizers. On the other hand, modern hydroponic farming produces very high yields in greenhouses without using any soil.

“Home grown vegetables” nothing compares when you grow your own food. Growing vegetables from seed is being recognized as a cheap way to get healthy food. “We all want food now that’s organic, we don’t want no chemicals or any of that rubbish on our vegetables.” At first home grown vegetables are done manually until the ground could be turned by the plough. More recently, nearly all processes being able to be performed by machine because of technology.

Here are some must try strategies to be able to “harvest the best vegetables” this growing season. You should Plant in raised beds with rich soil. An organically rich soil will grow a healthy extensive root able to reach more nutrients and water. Raised beds yield up to four times more than the same amount of space planted in rows.

You also need to “Round out the soil in your beds”. The shape of your beds can make a difference, too. Raised beds become more space-efficient by gently rounding the soil to form an arc. Lettuce, spinach, and other greens are perfect crops for planting on the edges of a rounded bed.

“Plant crops in triangles instead of rows”. Pay attention to how you arrange your plants. Avoid planting in square patterns or rows. Just be careful not to space your plants too tightly. Some plants won’t reach their full size or yield when crowded. Remember that overly tight spacing can also stress plants.

Try to “grow climbing plants to capitalize on space”. No matter how small your garden, you can grow more by going vertical. Growing vegetables vertically also saves time. Harvest and maintenance go faster because you can see exactly where the fruits are.

“Pick compatible pairings”. Interplanting compatible crops saves space too. Sounds great does it? compatible combinations include tomatoes, basil, and onions; leaf lettuce and peas or brassicas; carrots, onions, and radishes; and beets and celery.

You really need to “Time your crops carefully”. Succession planting allows you to grow more than one crop in a given space over the course of a growing season. That way, many gardeners can harvest three or even four crops from a single area. Try these tips and you will surely enjoy your Veggie garden.
