No matter where in the US you’re growing, you can now find complete, detailed vegetable planting guides. For every state!
Growing your own vegetables isn’t hard. The first thing you need to do is decide on a spot for your patch. Our tip? Pick one that gets a ton of sun. Most vegetables need at least 8 hours a day. You can read up on how much sun veggies need here. Next you’ll want to make sure you have a handy source for water.
Then comes the fun part! Choosing the vegetables you’ll grow. An integral part of this process? Knowing exactly how much space they will need. Then figuring out how long they take until harvest time. And quite possibly the single most important factor: the best time of the year to get them started.
The US is a vast geographic area. Some areas of the country only have one season, while others have several. So depending on where you live, different vegetables can be grown at different times. Learning all about proper planting times will help you maximize your growing space. AND it makes it all feel so much more rewarding to have a planting plan in place.
