Not everyone has a green thumb, but even those that do occasionally make mistakes. It doesn’t matter if you’re a total newbie, or if you’ve been growing your own food for twenty years– no one is perfect. No matter your skill level, if you’re looking for some basic tips to improve your vegetable garden and to grow better food, check out this post by Doug Jimerson at the Better Homes and Gardens Blog. Always avoid:
-Planting too early- be sure that there are no more freezing temperatures before you plant!
-Planting too close together- most plants need space
-Watering too much or too little- buy a rain gauge to see how much water your plants are truly getting
-Forgetting to improve the soil with compost
