Getting a vegetable garden going starts at first with a bit of hard work and often a bit of money needs to be spent on garden structures, soil, manures, mulch, plants etc. Then it might take a bit of time before you see anything tangible – and maybe a month or two before you have anything to harvest.
One of the most common problems I see with people starting vegetable gardens is going too big – too early. Your efforts can be spread too thin and enthusiasm can be lost which leads to poor results. Remember also, that the bigger the garden, the more time & effort it will take to maintain.
By starting small you give yourself a much better chance of getting good results – you’ll be amazed at the amount of food you can grow in just one well-tended bed Once you’ve completed and planted one area, there’s nothing stopping you from starting the next and if the enthusiasm, time, or money runs out you’ll still get good results from your effort.
