A $20 to $30 investment will give you most of the vegetables you need in a full growing season.
Your vegetables will be much healthier because you will grow them with organic techniques—no harsh chemicals or pesticides.
It can and should be a very rewarding and relaxing hobby.
Supplies For Planting A Vegetable Garden
If you will use containers, the first thing you need to get are some containers. They can be simple plastic buckets with holes drilled in the bottom for drainage to some nicer-looking pots from your local nursery or big box store.
A good quality potting soil that contains some good quality organic ingredients. That is your foundation, which will go a long way toward a great yield of good-tasting vegetables.
Fertilizer. There are many ways to go here; you can use various products or what comes out of your compost pile. A good organic and balanced natural fertilizer will do wonders for great yields of great-tasting vegetables.
Seeds or already started plants. The choice is yours. Seeds must be planted early in the growing season, while young ‘seedlings’ will give you a head start to planting a vegetable garden project.
Water. Do not forget to water your plants regularly. Do not drown them. When the soil is feeling a little dry, give those vegetables a drink.
We hope you enjoyed this post as an introduction to a rewarding hobby.
