Do you want to grow your own vegetables? This is a great place to start!

There are various reasons people become interested in growing their own vegetables, or producing and preserving their own food.

Many people are concerned with the source of their food, perhaps you are concerned with the growing practices and true motivation of big corporate farms that also have enormous lobbying power in the seats of government.

Possibly money is tight and the thought of many pounds of produce from a few dollars invested in seeds sounds like a good idea.

Maybe you just want to get outside, enjoy the  fresh air and have something to show for your efforts.

Whatever your reasons, you have decided to grow your own. Now there are questions. Where? How? What methods work best? What is best suited for your particular situation? What to grow?

If you are new to gardening this is a good place to start. In a series of posts, I’ll look at what you will want to consider in  planning a new garden. I will include discussions about:

Water – Where can a plant get a drink around here?

Follow along and start planning your garden today! Please ask questions and I’ll do my best to answer them!
