Why garden, you ask? How about enjoying the best vegetables and fruit you've ever eaten? If you've never tasted garden-fresh food, you will be amazed by the sweet, juicy flavours and vibrant textures. There's absolutely nothing quite like fresh veggies, especially if you grow them yourself-which you can! It may seem daunting at first, but gardening is a very rewarding hobby. In this book guide, we'll highlight the basics of vegetable gardening and planning: how to choose the right site for your garden, how to create the right-size garden, and how to select which vegetables to grow. So, now you are convinced and have finally made the decision to start a vegetable garden. Congratulations! You've made a wise decision with long-term ramifications. Now you're probably wondering which vegetables you should grow at home? From pots to plots, there are easy to grow vegetables to suit gardens of every size. Growing vegetables isn't complicated. You'll not only have a reliable source of low-cost, fresh vegetables, but you'll also have complete control over how your crops are grown, allowing you to make them as organic and natural as you want. You can also plant extras to can and freeze, as well as make your own jams, jellies, pickles, and preserves - a great way to extend the goodness of your garden (and your food budget) into the winter. Furthermore, working with soil and plants is a fantastic stress reliever. Working with the earth is a natural antidote to anxiety and worry.

Clearly, there are numerous advantages to having a vegetable garden. As already mentioned earlier we'll cover how to choose a location, the basic tools you'll need, how to prepare your garden bed, plant selection, companion plants, successful planning, sowing, watering, weeding, fertilizing, small space gardens, and vegetable containers in this book to get you off to the best possible start.
