Cultivating Vegetables, Herbs, and Fruits

Growing vegetables, herbs, and fruits begins with planning your garden. Purchase seeds as needed; you can start anytime, so why not now? Soil preparation is essential before planting. Dig the soil to a depth of 6-10 inches and add a 2–4-inch layer of organic matter, such as compost, to improve soil structure and nutrient content.

Vegetables require nutrients for growth. Options include bone meal or a balanced vegetable garden fertilizer. The numbers on fertilizer packages indicate the percentages of nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium, respectively. Nitrogen supports green growth, phosphorus aids root and fruit development, and potassium enhances disease resistance and fruit quality.

For organic gardening, use natural fertilizers like peat moss, compost, or composted manure to enrich your vegetables with nutrients. In a few months, you'll enjoy the delicious results!
