DIY Organic Vegetable Garden

How to make a vegetable garden:
Here is a fantastic "Do it Yourself" Organic Vegetable Garden project. I really wanted to plant an organic veggie garden in our backyard because I was always going to the grocery store for the same vegetables and I don't like when produce goes bad. Picking vegetables fresh from my garden has been ideal! I constantly cook with the same types of vegetables for our meals so our garden has been a lifesaver. Now you too can grow your favorite vegetables and fruits by follow this step-by-step tutorial! These are the steps I took to accomplish my organic veggie garden.

Step 1: Dig up the area of soil to prepare for planting. (EX. Grass removal). Make sure soil is managable and free of weeds.

Step 2: Assemble your garden planter box/border. You can make one or buy one. I picked up a wood border from Lowe's, all I had to do it assemble the brackets. There are many idea options for borders. (My husband picked the 'brown log' looking one...)

Step 3: Add a layer of composted manure.

Step 4: Add a layer of Miracle-Gro Garden Soil for Flowers and Vegetables, 2 Cu. Ft. bag. Adjust number a bags you will need for the size of garden.

Step 5: Insert any wire supports for the type of vegetable growth you have. Dig hole, water hole, plant seedling, firmly press soil, & water seedling again.

Ready, set, GROW!

Step 6: Water garden 2 times a day in spring/summer. Do not water during direct sun light. It's best to water in early morning & at dusk hours.
