Growing your own veggie garden is fun and easy. It’s a great project for the whole family and and best of all, home grown vegetables taste so much better than store-bought! If you’ve never started your own veggie garden, or think you don’t have a green thumb, Warren will get you planting and growing in no time.

A raised bed provides the best drainage and is the best way to avoid fungal problems and insect attacks. Just build a simple wood frame and fill it with soil.

Improve the soil with compost or manure. Mix some good organic material into the soil.

Adding mulch will help protect the soil from drying out and keep it at a more even temperature.

Dig tiny holes to set plants into.

  1. Have you done a straw bale veggie garden? We want to put one of these in our back yard because we’re tall and hate bending over plans. 🙂
