First of all
Vegetable gardening is ALL OUT WAR.
I am creating this thread due to the prodding of member Salchanra.
Second ,Where do you live on this planet? Reason being that it is really completely
wrong and difficult to argue with (Shall I Say Her).
So Google or Encyclopedia your Zone. I am in Zone 5, so I will give you that.
Next, is immediate Location. This is important. This is not a matter of convenience.
For best Results, a 20x20 foot location in good what we call "Bottom Ground".
Reason Being, when you find out how much work this entails, you really wont
want to start over at a new location. The actual dimensions could be 2000 feet X
2000 feet or more, anything less than 6x12 feet will do, but it will be difficult to
work in. Remember, energy doesn't like to be crowded. Find Maximum Sun Spot.
Third, Fencing: Good fences make good Neighbors. Fence your garden
Including a gate, and don't let anyone give you a hard time about it.
Fourth, Have access to water. Spickets and hoses are excellent. Otherwise, be
more than willing to transport H2O to your garden by Tank in Truck or Milk Jugs
By hand. That would mean as many milk jugs as it would take by every child in the
neighborhood. Keep em busy and out of trouble. Otherwise Hose access is the way.
Fifth, Soil. Generally the darker the soil the better. Light colored soil is either sandy
or lacking in nutrients....to be continued if you folks are interested. Wildmanimal
