Have you ever wanted to grow your own vegetables but don't know where to begin? I have been there too. I started my gardening ventures a few years ago. For me, gardening became a type of therapy after my mom died of cancer. I have learned a few things that I would like to share with the beginning gardener. First, prep your soil. Decide on where you are going to put your garden. Weeks before planting time, get your garden spot plowed up. Once the area is plowed up, you will need to go ahead a get all of the debris out of the garden spot. By debris, I am talking about grass and weeds that have been plowed up. After that, then go ahead a treat it with round up weed and grass killer. This step will help prevent your garden from being overrun by weeds and grass. I had that problem this year. My garden was larger than last year, and the grass and weeds overtook parts of it. I found out that treating my garden area with round up before I plant will prevent or decrease this problem. I will definitely give this a try next year. After the round up treatment, you should then put down some Miracle Grow Top Soil. The top soil will help your baby plants to grow into big and healthy adults. Healthy Adults turn into healthy and good produce. A good produce is what we are looking for right? When your babies have taken root and started to grow, then you will need to start giving them some food. I have found that the Miracle Grow Garden Sprayer works really well. I recommend treating your garden once per week. I think that the Miracle Grow feeder mentioned once per two weeks of treatment but I found out that once per week helped my garden the best. With this treatment my garden produces wonderful produce almost daily. Play around and see what works well for your area. Every garden is different; it really depends on your soil. Those are just a few tips on how to have a successful garden. If you are a beginner, don't be discouraged if your first garden doesn't do well. It takes time and experience to find out what works well for your area and your plants. Don't give up on your dreams of a wonderful garden. You can do it!
