Planting a Garden
Whether you live in an apartment and only have a deck or you have a back yard in town, you live on an acreage and have unlimited space, you should make a plan for growing your fruit and veges. There are plenty of internet sites that will enable you to make your plan, but a peice of paper and a pen will do just as well.
Your garden plan should take into account:
Buy yourself a book for your garden. In here you will note what you have planted, where you have planted it and the yeild you have from it. It will be your go-to book each new season; it eliminates the guess work and you ensures you will only plant what you know will grow.
Measure out the area you have availble and make a rough scale drawing in your book. Remember to record areas of shade, fixed objects (such as trees and fences) and also where your water will come from.
If you are working with an existing garden space, record what you grew last year and where it grew; you should make a new drawing each Spring. Your plan will change though the year as you harvest and replant.
