I may have jumped in WAY over my head on this goal, but I am loving it! My indoor sow veggies are doing well (looks like I’ll have a ton of zucchini, butternut, tomato, and onion… wish those peppers would come up though) and this week I’m prepping my raised beds :) I’m so pumped! 7 months ago
My city has several community garden plots. Ever since I discovered them I’ve been a bit smitten. This year I think that I’m finally going to rent a plot! I can’t get one until the first of April (I’m in Alaska, so this makes sense), but as soon as I can I’m going to put down my $35. That just seems amazing to me—only $35! Now that I’ve decided I want to do this, the next step will be to visit my local Cooperative Extension to learn more about vegetable gardening up here. 10 months ago
Looking forward to seeing their growth. :) 19 months ago
I think I will do this in containers. I also need to make a nice design that protects my little planned crop from the plump squirrels that operate like an unruly, furry, street gang. Last year when I planted a few tomato plants they destroyed them. Pulling off the fruit eating a bite off of each tomato. Wasteful beasts. 19 months ago
I registered a field to grow some vegetable in my apartment community, but I never have any experience. Please give me some suggestions. 19 months ago
I’m interested in plants and herbs, and their vast effects on the body. I’d like to grow my own garden with vegetables and herbs, free from pesticides, and so that I may share the benefits of my garden in a healthy and comprehensive way with myself and those in my life. 23 months ago
How I did it: First I did a lot of research - probably more than I needed to do. I bought about 4 books on kitchen gardens and vegetable gardening and learnt as much as I could. I also researched websites to learn how to set-out a garden, what plants are in season e.t.c.
I built a planter box out of hardwood planks. Next I ordered a few tonnes of nutrient rich soil and filled the planter box.
Lastly I went to a decent nursery and purchased a range of different vegetable seedlings I like. Planted them, and now I am watering them well every day.
I will mulch the garden once the plants are a little more established, and will look to fertilise every few weeks as required as well. Read how I did it… 2 years ago
