Learn Exactly How to Grow 25 Vegetable Garden Favorites for Maximum Harvests

Finally….the week we’ve all been itching for.  At least where I live, it’s planting time! Did you ever wonder exactly how to grow specific vegetables in your garden for the biggest, healthiest harvests?

I’ve spent the past few weeks pouring over my gardening books and scouring the internet to learn all that I can about the specific veggies, fruits, and herbs that I intend to grow. While lots of folks just stick everything in the ground and grow it under the same conditions, (exactly what I’ve been doing) I believe that a little attention toward the specific needs of individual plants can reward you with greater productivity and healthier plants. Below, you can find a round-up of the information I am using to set up my garden this year. I hope some of this is useful to you, as well.

Planting Time Books and Products

These are the books that I referred to when planning this year’s garden.

I’m also a big proponent of Smart Beds. If you don’t have construction skills (ahem – me – cough) they are a great way to make yourself a raised bed on top of any surface. The price is very reasonable too.

Tell me about your garden

Is it planting time where you are? What are you planning to grow this year?  Do you grow plants specifically to certain guidelines or do you grow everything the same way? Please share your very best tips and tell me about your gardens in the comments.
