Let’s talk about vegetable gardens and what we have been very successful in our garden. We use compost and lots of it. If you don’t have it readily accessible, we do have it and let me tell you, it is beyond great. We will backfill each hole for each plant with compost (we call it BLACK GOLD ’round here), Espoma Biotone starter plus fertilizer unless it is tomatoes and we use Tomato Tone, plant the plants or seeds, water and most importantly, the entire garden gets covered in straw or mulch. Some sort of covering so the moisture stays and the weeds go!
Each day (I am going to try real hard), I am going to tell you what we do to help you be a more successful gardener! So stay tuned for more!
