Planting the Garden

There are several ways to raise vegetables. Planting in rows is perfect for small gardens. Vegetables grown on vertical supports increase yields per square foot. Or plant crops in raised beds, where the soil is mounded up, allowing it to warm faster and providing for better drainage.

Whichever planting method you decide on, remember to rotate crops. Switching vegetables around from year to year will help prevent diseases and enable the soil to rest and renew itself. Your local garden center or county extension agent can recommend vegetables and planting methods suitable for your backyard.
