You’ve thought about starting a garden, figured out what you’re going to grow, and decided where you’re going to put it all. That’s the easy part. Now, the hard part is keeping everything alive. (Cue the scary music).
Okay, that’s tongue-in-cheek. Even if you think you have the brownest of brown thumbs, you can garden. I promise. Unfortunately, people are more intimidated by this than anything else when it comes to gardening. But trust me, there’s no need to be scared.
Plants want to grow. It’s in their best interest. They’re not sitting there in the ground thinking, “I really don’t like him. I think I’m going to kill myself just to spite him.” They were created to pass themselves on to future generations through their seeds, which doesn’t happen if they keel over when the wind starts blowing. Generally, unless you’re trying to grow pineapples in northern Ohio, it’s harder to kill plants than keep them alive. Take a look at the weeds in your front yard and tell me that isn’t true…
So now for starting a garden – how do you grow these fancy new vegetables?
