Planning your Vegetable Garden

My plan for my 2015 garden was to get "knee deep in the weeds" and start blogging about - my plan.
As I was online looking for new ideas, I stumbled upon several blogs. You know what, this blog Planning your first vegetable garden is just great. So why should I try to re-invent the wheel?

 Planting a garden with vegetables also gives you the pleasure of savoring a delicious, sun-warmed tomato fresh from the garden. In almost every case, the flavor and texture of varieties you can grow far exceed the best grocery store produce.Plus, growing vegetables can be fun. It's a great way to spend time with children or have a place to get away and spend time outdoors in the sun.
Learning what to plant in a garden with vegetables, and how to tend them for the best harvest, is probably easier than you think. If you plan it right, you can enjoy a beautiful garden full of the fruits of your labor -- without having to spend hours and hours tending it. Planting a garden that includes vegetables and flowers means you've combined natural companions, and that can turn a potential eyesore into an attractive landscape feature. 
Take it slow, don't get overwhelmed with all the information out there. Make it fun - don't make it a job. Most importantly don't spend a lot of money. Most people plant a garden to save money on their grocery bill and eat healthily. I like growing in containers. I use whatever ... from plastic buckets to fancy planters. I don't buy anything I look around my house, my basement and my attic. As long as it holds water - I'm good!  Check out some ideas I have on Pinterest. Start your own Pinterest account and save the idea you'd like to implement.
