Vegetable Gardening Tipscomments (9) August 7th, 2009
As hobbies go, growing vegetables isn't complicated. Basically it boils down to this: You prepare the soil, plant the seeds, water, weed, harvest, and clean up. Then you do it again next year. Not rocket science, to be sure. You can read extensively on how to grow specific crops, how to deal with pests and diseases, how to preserve the harvest, and so on, but often it's the little how-to tip or suggestion that can solve a problem effectively and efficiently.
Here are some links to get you started. We'll be adding more as we get them, and we hope you'll contribute some of your own. Click on the share a post link, or read about how to contribute to this site for additional information on posting.
