Planting a Vegetable Garden
By Cathy Pearl
  

1     A vegetable garden is a good thing to have at your house. Gardens take time to care for, but there are many rewards. The best reward is the food that comes out of the garden. The food that you grow can be frozen or canned so you can use it long after the plants are done growing.
 
2     The first thing that you need to figure out is where to put the garden. Close to the house is a good idea. You can get to the food in the garden quickly and easily. But your garden needs at least six hours of sunlight every day. This means you may have to put the garden a little farther from the house to avoid the shadow cast by your house.
 
3     You have to think about how big of a garden you want. It is better to have a small garden that you can take care of instead of a big garden full of weeds. If you have a lot of rabbits or other animals that will eat the plants in the garden, you will need a high fence to keep them safe.
 
4     Before you plant the garden it would be a good idea to draw a map of where you will put each plant. You have to be careful to plant taller plants north of shorter plants. This will keep them from blocking the sun if there are smaller plants in front of them.
 
5     Stretch a string between two sticks to mark out your row. You should also use sticks to mark rows you have already planted. This will help you to make sure that the rows are far enough apart. Look on the back of the package again. It will tell you how far apart the seeds and rows need to be so the plants grow well.
