Vegetable gardening in the comfort of one’s home has captured the interest of many because it’s a great way to save money and secure the quality of food as opposed to buying from the market or grocery stores.
It’s also a great way to get exercise while connecting with nature.
For those who have just decided to start their own vegetable garden, it’s important to start small and take baby steps to gain experience and knowledge about gardening along the way.
Learn the basics like weeding, watering, and more before investing time and money in this productive hobby. Also start to get comfortable with spending time outdoors.
A good size for a beginner vegetable garden is 10 by 10 feet. Keep it simple by selecting only five types of vegetables and plant a few of each type. If space is an issue, consider going smaller than the given measurement or try container gardening.
