You’d be surprised at how many gardeners spend little or no time planning their garden every year.
Sometimes they just can’t resist all the beautiful pictures in the seed catalogs while other times they fill half their garden with vegetables nobody in their family even likes, because “those vegetables are in every garden.”
One of the first steps you should take when planning your garden is to decide what you like and will eat. Don’t grow something you wouldn’t buy to eat.
And since most of us have limited space for our garden, try to grow things that fit any or all of the following criteria:
- Hard to find in the store
- Expensive to buy
- Are best when fresh
- Offer different varieties than you can buy in the store
