If you have a 4 foot by 8 foot space in your yard, you’d be surprised how many vegetables you can grow in that area. It’s a good idea to start small. Some folks try to do too much too fast and get discouraged. I highly recommend starting a garden by building a raised bed, and if you’re interested, here’s how you can build that raised bed.
I’ve built 12 raised beds so far, and as you can see, Jane has chosen to pretty things up by planting flowers in her plastic painted pots, done in pastels, of course.
One of the biggest challenges of growing a garden is fighting the weeds. This year I decided to lay down landscaping fabric under all of our tomatoes. Good move and money well spent. Not a weed in sight! You can read about it in the post Our Tomato Planting Tips.
