You’ll eat better and save money. To complete this How-To you will need: A sunny garden spot A wire mesh fence Seeds or seedlings Flowers A soil test A sunny garden spot A wire mesh fence Seeds or seedlings Flowers A soil test Step 1: Decide on a garden type Decide between a raised-bed garden or an in-ground one. Raised beds, which consist of purchased topsoil that sits within a wooden frame, are ideal if your soil is stony or sandy. The main advantage of an in-ground garden is that it needs less watering. Tip: For an in-ground garden, test your soil to find out what nutrients it needs. Garden centers sell do-it-yourself kits, or you can arrange a test through the Cooperative Extension System, a national agricultural network. Find a nearby office on the USDA web site. Step 2: Pick a good spot Pick a spot that gets a lot of sun and isn’t obscured by tree or hedge shade. Step 3: Prep the land Prepare the land by building your raised bed or clearing and tilling a patch of land to a depth of about one foot. A 10 foot by 10 foot parcel is a good size for a beginner

    Yes planning is important. I had beans and other things growing in the wrong spots so I had to rip them out.

  • mooersrealty says:

    Design is everything and in small spaces, you have to think what produce will be all up and harvested so other slower growing vegetables can move in to that space. Timing is everything in gardening and life! Great post video!

    Look good bro,

    If you really want to maximize your space, try bucket growing you can put a lot of buckets were your raised bed is. Probably triple your gardening.

    thanks for sharing,

    I’ve found that using WINSTON WEAVER fertilizer works well. The company is located at 4440 Cherry Street, Winston Salem, NC, 27105. This is unrelated to the IRAnian Hostage Crisis, despite the 444 start of street number 4440. CHASE JAMES WEAVER’s 767-70-6062 is unrelated to 767-7579; he was born on the seventh anniversary of NASCAR driver Dale Earnhardt’s Feb. 18, 2001 death. 246-62-0093 turned 2 years old the day actor Dennis WEAVER (571-03-3432) who died in RIDGEWAY, CO, was born: JUN. 4, 1924

    I live in North Central Florida, and I have been doing raised bed gardening in concrete blocks for about 20 years……I haven’t found a down side to using blocks yet. In fact the blocks contain lime that sweetens the soil and helps with plants growing.

    boycott comercials on the Internet! They already took over TV, Then cable TV!

    Did you know when cable TV first came out there were’nt comercials because you were already paying for your service. Now you pay for cable TV and have to watch 30 minute comercials. Don’t let them take over the internet. When a video that comes up has a comercial leave a comment like this and leave. and don’t give them good ratings no matter how good the video was.
