This year Joe and I decided we want to do a vegetable garden. I did some reading and found out that we should start small our first year and add in the coming years to avoid frustration. We decided we are going to try growing lettuce, tomatoes, carrots, bell peppers, and cucumbers this year.
Today I did some garden prep. I had to sow the lettuce seeds indoors now to plant in mid April. I’m going to try to space our lettuce growth so we have continued supply. I will sow more lettuce indoors in about 2 weeks as well as peppers and tomatoes. The carrots and cucumbers can be planted outside without any indoor growth.
I’m hopeful that our garden will yield many vegetables but at the very least it will be a learning experience for next year.
We are also planning to do a raised garden bed. Joe will be working on that in the next few weeks.
Does anyone have any tricks or advice for a beginner gardener? Please comment and help me out!
