Growing a vegetable garden is fun, rewarding and can save money on food expenses. The best place for a garden is near the house and close to a water source.
Choose varities that thrive in your zone, and plant from seed or by buying transplants. Consider planting in raised beds to improve soil quality. Keep up with garden maintenance to keep weeds and disease-causing organisms at bay.
