Starting A Vegetable Garden
There are many benefits to starting a vegetable garden. Not only does it produce fresh, delicious veggies but it also saves money and gives you a chance to bond with the earth.
The first step is deciding what you will plant in the garden. This can be tricky because there are so many varieties and zones, so it is best to get some advice from a local source.
