How to start a Garden
By Danielle Velozo
First find a sunny area in your yard
You want to also make sure you can easily build a fence or a barricade to prevent animals from destroying your vegetables.
Making a garden can be messy- If you are worried about your manicure, make sure to have garden gloves and you will need a shovel to get through the next step.
Finding someone to help you is always a plus!!
You will now need to focus on removing the grass - this can be achieved by using the shovel and just lifting the dirt under the grass. You will then need to shake dirt off the roots and toss the grass off the side to a pile. This grass can later be used in your compost pile.
Compost is a pile, not in your garden, but maybe to the side that you will put your scraps from vegetables, eggs shells, fishbones, newspapers or mulch into. This decayed organic matter will turn into very rich planting soil.
Because you will have no compost decayed and ready to plant in, you will need to buy a few bags of PLANTING SOIL-depending on your size garden OR you could find a farm willing to let you steal some cow poop. Cows have TWO stomachs, so soil from their manure is very rich and will help aid in the growth of your vegetables.
Because the cow manure may be stinky at first, its ok to dust some lime over your garden soil. This will help reduce the smell and you’re neighbors will appreciate this. The lime will also help to balance the Ph of the soil.
Once your soils PH has checked out, using a ph meter that can be purchased at any hardware store, you are ready to plant! But first make sure you do not plant the wrong plants together because that can kill your harvest.
I always go to a local garden store and buy actual plants, I do not plant
seeds; Both options are fine depending on the time you plant.
Make sure to water everyday!
Either early in the morning or after the sun goes down. This way you do not burn your plants.
Once everything is planted you can build a fence and trellis
The fence will protect you from any animal and your trellis will help you tie your vegtables to, once the start to really grow!
