• Choose the easiest veggies to grow. Tomatoes, radishes, zucchini, carrots, peas, peppers and lettuce will help make your first attempt at vegetable gardening successful.

• Choose the sunniest spot. Vegetables need up to eight hours of direct sunlight in rich, well-drained soil. Start with a 6’ x 10’ plot to keep the size manageable. Use string to mark off rows running east to west for the best sun exposure.

• Plant at the right time. Your local county extension service can help guide you on what to plant and when.

• Control destructive pests. Aphids, mites, leafhoppers and mealybugs are the kinds of pests that eat veggies. Bayer Advanced™ Natria Multi-Insect Control kills harmful insects on contact and it’s made with canola oil. It’s for organic gardening ( Always read and follow label directions.

• Deep, infrequent watering is key: Stick your finger in the soil. If it’s dry, then water. One inch of water will wet sandy soil a foot deep and clay soil about five inches deep.

• Organic mulch helps keep the weeds out. It also decomposes, feeds the plants and keeps the soil loose and cool.

• Feed your veggies. Apply nitrogen fertilizer regularly, especially when they’re young.

You might consider sharing your great-tasting veggies with your neighbors. If they become interested in gardening, you can pool your resources, create your own neighborhood food co-op and save even more money.
