Planting a veggie garden
For those who have the space, a backyard veggie patch is the simplest way to produce your own food – and you don’t have to be an experienced gardener to begin. Start with a small bed and easy to grow staples like tomatoes, spinach or lettuce then expand your plot as you learn more. Some basic info on soil preparation and seasonality is handy to get you started – then there’s a wealth of books and online resources out there to get you growing like a professional.
